This transaction marks a further step in Mid Europa’s strategy to consolidate the market, it said. Earlier this week, the firm announced the acquisition of Euromedic Labs in the Czech Republic.
Consilio, which after the transaction will change its name to Diagnostyka Consilio, offers pathology examinations to hospitals, clinics and individual medical practices, through laboratory located in Łódź. Last year, the company performed approximately 140,000 histopathology tests and 100,000 cytopathology examinations.
Mid Europa director Paweł Padusiński, said, “The acquisition of Consilio, which will be financed with Diagnostyka’s own resources, represents a significant step in the development of Diagnostyka into specialised examinations. It further demonstrates our strong commitment to consolidate the Polish laboratory market.”
The firm is said to be only months from a first closing for its €1bn-targeting fourth fund.
