6/11/2012 8:40:11 AM

Private equity fund EQT VI has agreed to buy medical device manufacturer BSN Medical from Montagu Private Equity for €1.8 billion (£1.4 billion). BSN has annual sales of €700 million and around 4,000 employees. It is a major supplier of wound care, compression therapy and orthopaedic products to hospitals and pharmacies around the world. The company was founded in 2001 as a joint venture between Beiersdorf AG and Smith & Nephew, and was acquired by Montagu Private Equity in 2005. “We view BSN as a highly attractive growth case with strong resilience across the business cycle,” said Marcus Brennecke, partner at EQT Partners in Germany, and investment advisor to EQT VI.
