B. Braun Medical Ltd. Gets Options to Buy Rhoen Stake

Published: Jul 13, 2012

B.Braun, an unlisted maker of medical devices, has acquired options to buy a stake of German hospital operator Rhoen-Klinikum, two people familiar with the matter said, further dimming Fresenius SE's chances of taking control of Rhoen. B.Braun, which supplies products ranging from catheters to surgical Instruments, has been holding the options of up to roughly 5 percent for some time and the goal of the group - as well as that of Rhoen rivals Asklepios and Sana - is to prevent Fresenius to take control of Rhoen, one of the sources said on Friday.
