Fredericks Michael & Co. Advised WerfenLife SA (ES) on the Acquisition of CA Casyso AG (CH) together with its Tem subsidiaries

Fredericks Michael & Co. acted as exclusive financial advisor to WerfenLife SA, a leading in vitro diagnostic solutions developer, manufacturer and distributor of highly specialized products for Healthcare and Life Sciences, on its acquisition of CA Casyso AG together with its Tem® subsidiaries. The consideration was EUR 125mn. Casysos’s Tem® subsidiaries specialize in the development, production and distribution of viscoelastic diagnostic testing through its Rotem® systems, which help make better decisions about the need of blood transfusion and use of blood products (Patient Blood Management (“PBM”)). This technology improves patient outcomes while reducing hospital costs. WerfenLife, headquartered in Barcelona (Spain), acquired Casyso, headquartered in Basel (Switzerland) through its subsidiary Instrumentation Laboratory Inc. (“IL”) headquartered in Bedford (MA, United States). The acquisition enables WerfenLife to expand their leadership in Hemostasis and Critical Care in vitro diagnostic.

“A passion for innovation, leading systems and extensive knowledge in PBM, make Tem® a perfect complement to our focus, commitment, and leadership in Hemostasis and Critical Care IVD,” said Ramon Benet, CEO at IL.  “IL and our global Werfen organizations are ideally positioned to maximize the potential of the Rotem® testing systems, which intersect our existing business and present synergies in our core competencies and customer call points.  Most importantly, Rotem® systems share the same ultimate benefit of all our products ─ to help customers reduce overall hospital costs, while improving patient care.”

The acquisition reflects WerfenLife’s strategy of growth through the acquisition of high-quality companies, with complementary expertise and access to new markets. At the same time, Tem® will be able to widen the range of services offered to its clients and expand into areas where WerfenLife is already strong as an in vitro diagnostic solutions developer.

FM&Co.’s advisory services to WerfenLife included contacting and meeting with Casyso, valuing, structuring, and negotiating the terms and conditions of the agreement.
