Baker McKenzie advised Mundipharma GmbH on its sale of their Limburg based production plant to Fidelio Healthcare Holding GmbH. Fidelio Healthcare will continue the Mundipharma business in Limburg and take over most of the employees. Plans are to produce its own products as well as medicine by order of other companies at this location.

Pharmaceutical products, that were produced in Limburg until now, will be fabricated by Fidelio for Mundipharma in the future. The contract was signed by both parties on February 20, 2018. The acquisition is subject to the approval by the responsible antitrust authorities.

"The transaction is part of our client's strategic realignment. It allows the preservation of the Limburg location with about 100 jobs at the same time,. With our team we were able to contribute to the successful sale of the production plants from a legal point of view", comments Corporate/M&A-Partner Christian Atzler.
