Funds advised by Permira, in partnership with the Marcucci family and supported by their co-investors, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) and Ampersand Capital Partners, have completed the joint acquisition and combination of Kedrion and BPL, alongside Kedrion’s existing shareholders, including FSI and CDP Equity and other minority investors.
The business will have a combined US plasma collection footprint of close to 75 centres, with a portfolio of 37 life-saving products reaching over 100 countries. The business is expected to generate 60% of revenue in the US market with 10 marketed products, building on its strong established positions in Italy and the UK. The company is also establishing a presence in the Chinese market through its recent distribution agreement for Albuminex.
The Permira funds, in partnership with the Marcucci family, will support the combined company to grow organically through the internationalisation of its existing portfolio and the acceleration of new product development, as well as pursuing inorganic growth opportunities to become a further diversified and specialist rare disease platform.
