At Van Doorne London we aspire to keep you posted on relevant legal and market developments in the Netherlands. We recently noticed an interesting emerging trend of investments in Dutch healthcare. The number of acquisitions in the Dutch healthcare industry has never been as high as in 2015.
Following a steady growth in previous years, the number of transactions in the Dutch healthcare industry continuous to increase. Noticeable is the increase in private equity investments, growing at a rate of 36% with 30 deals in 2015. The Van Doorne Healthcare & Life Sciences team experiences similar trends during the years. The team has again seen an increase in demand for advice to private equity buyers and sellers on healthcare transactions. This included acquisitions in and divestments of both direct healthcare providers as well as suppliers and subcontractors.
We will keep a close eye on this trend and any implications this may have for your business with the Netherlands. For further insight and enquires, Dimitri van Hoewijk is a key contact within the London team.
