GCA Altium advises FLEX Capital on the acquisition financing for Amparex
GCA Altium acted as debt advisor to FLEX Capital on the acquisition of Amparex GmbH, a leading cloud-based provider of ERP systems for audiologists and opticians in the DACH region.
Amparex, headquartered in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany, is the country’s leading ERP provider for audiologists and opticians, as well as a provider of software solutions for therapists and private practitioners including physiotherapists. The company offers an individually adjustable practice management solution in order to optimise and streamline customers’ standard workflow processes such as patient management, appointment scheduling, record keeping, inventory control, invoicing and marketing.
GCA Altium advised FLEX Capital on a tailor-made debt financing structure which provides the group with a balanced offering of attractive financing terms. As well as high flexibility to support its organic growth strategy, the financing also will support the company’s inorganic growth which has started through the acquisition of IPRO, the leading provider of software solutions for opticians in Germany.
Christoph Jost, Managing Partner at FLEX Capital, commented: “In the area of software for healthcare providers, we see the opportunity to provide by far the best offer for users through targeted investments in technology and products. To achieve this, we have been building a software group now consisting of its first members with Amparex and IPRO, the clear market leaders in the fields of acoustics and optics.”
Thorsten Weber, Managing Director at GCA Altium, added: “We are convinced that FLEX Capital is the ideal partner for Amparex, and together with the management team will lead the group into its next growth phase. This new financing structure is a perfect fit and will support the group’s further buy and build strategy.”
The transaction closed in October 2021.
