Paris, April 27th, 2023,
DDA & Company advised the shareholders of Spengler Group in the acquisition of medical equipment manufacturers Dessillons & Dutrillaux and Electro-Concept Médical, positioning itself as a French champion in the manufacture of medical devices.
Supported by Andera Partners and Africinvest Europe since May 2021, Spengler Group is a French medical device manufacturer. With a total revenue of more than 20 million euros, Spengler Group has a growth dynamic and operational efficiency that allow it to actively participate in the consolidation of its market in France and internationally.
Mayeul Caron, Partner at Andera Partners, states: “Following the acquisition of Cardionet last year, we continue to build a French champion of high-value-added medical devices. The multiple crises of recent years have highlighted the urgent need for companies to shorten and control their supply chains. With this double acquisition, Spengler Group’s offer is not only unrivaled but also the fact that its expertise and products are largely owned and manufactured in France is a guarantee of sustainable value creation in macroeconomic and geopolitical contexts tending towards more uncertainties.”
Joël Malabat, President of Spengler Group, adds: “This is a strategic double acquisition for Spengler Group. It strengthens its manufacturing division and is part of creating an attractive value proposition in the field of medical diagnostics, orthopedic surgery, and neonatology. This project, besides its industrial aspect, will also allow the acceleration and sharing of innovation programs as well as strong commercial synergies, particularly internationally. The teams at DDM and ECM, led by Damien Péris, have done remarkable work in industrial and commercial development, and we are delighted to begin this new stage alongside them.”
Damien Peris, President of DDM and ECM, completes: “I join Spengler Group with great motivation, along with all the teams, to continue our common growth driven by R&D, the industrialization of devices, and a first-class export offering. We share the same corporate culture and common vision with the Spengler teams, which will allow us a quick and successful integration.”
Alexandre Odin, partner at DDA & Company, concludes: “We are very pleased to have been able to contribute to the realization of this merger, which carries an exciting human and industrial project at the time of reindustrialization and the promotion of French know-how.”
The DDA & Company team, composed of Alexandre Odin and Florian Charriere, advised Spengler Group in this acquisition transaction.
