CEE-focused ARX Equity sells eye hospital group Lexum


CEE-focused private equity firm ARX Equity Partners has sold its stake in eye hospital group Lexum to strategic buyer Moonray Healthcare following a holding period of just three years.

ARX bought into Czech Republic-based Lexum through an MBO in 2009, before bolting on Poland’s Lexum Medica a year later.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Lexum operates 10 hospitals across central Europe including the European Eye Centre, a new 2,500 sq m flagship facility in Prague.

Moonray Healthcare was advised by KPMG and DLA Piper, while ARX Equity Partners was advised by White & Case.

ARX’s last reported deal was the management buy-in of a majority shareholding in electrical equipment designer and manufacturer Manag in June last year.

The firm operates out of Romania, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland, and targets later-stage investments such as expansion financing, MBOs and consolidation deals.
