We are proud to announce a new phase in Althea’s journey.
Having created over the last few years the leading pan-European operator in integrated clinical engineering services, with the fundamental support of the private equity fund Permira, through the integration and development of multiple players in the healthcare field, today a new chapter of the company begins.
F2i SGR, the leading Italian independent infrastructure fund with assets of more than 6 billion euros under management, has reached an agreement to acquire Althea Group, with the exception of the activities of the UK which has instead been acquired by DWS.
The sale to F2i, combined with the strengthening of the shareholding structure, including the Chief Executive Officer Alessandro Dogliani and the key managers, will guarantee the Group both the capital and skills necessary to focus on long-term partnership projects with hospitals and healthcare entities in order to allow the technological modernization of the medical infrastructure.
Alessandro Dogliani, CEO of Althea Group: “I would like to thank Permira and Silvia Oteri in particular for having consistently supported the creation and development of the Althea Group, which has deeply transformed such an important sector in recent years. I am also convinced that F2i is now the perfect partner to accompany the Group in its next growth chapter, which will lead Althea to further strengthen its role as a partner of hospitals through investments aimed at modernizing biomedical infrastructures supporting the national hospital system”.
F2i was assisted by Mediobanca (financial advisor) Clifford Chance (legal advisor) PEDERSOLI STUDIO LEGALE (legal advisor), goetzpartners (industrial advisor), PwC (accountant advisor & ESG), and Marsh (insurance advisor).
Permira was assisted by Rothschild & Co, EY, Giliberti Triscornia e Associati, Maisto e Associati e Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
