31.03.2022 TGS Baltic advised on the largest healthcare clinic merger in Lithuania

TGS Baltic represented InMedica and its shareholders INVL Baltic Sea Growth Fund, one of the largest Baltic private equity funds, and UAB Litgaja, the holding company of Mr. Kęstutis Broniukaitis, the founder and the CEO of InMedica, on merging the leading Lithuanian private medical chains InMedica and MediCA Group. This is the largest transaction in Lithuanian healthcare sector to date.

The project took almost two years to complete, to a large extent, because of a particularly complex merger control issues, which were triggered by the transaction. This has led to one of the longest examinations of the notified concentration in Lithuanian history. During the merger examination the parties proposed remedies and commitments to Lithuanian Competition Council to divest a part of their business in Šiauliai and Kaunas. The commitments were successfully implemented by selling the divested business to an independent third party prior to the closing.

Following the transaction, INVL Baltic Sea Growth Fund remains the largest shareholder with 45% stake in InMedica through BSGF Sanus, another 40% owned by Latvia's largest private medical business group Repharm, and 15% by Litgaja.
