Ace Pharmaceuticals has been acquired by Gilde Buy Out Partners, Gilde Healthcare and Quadrum Capital

Ace Pharmaceuticals BV has been acquired by Gilde Buy Out Partners, Gilde Healthcare, Quadrum Capital and the management team.

Ace Pharmaceuticals is a leading pharmaceutical company in the niche of medical need products, and is based in Zeewolde, the Netherlands. As an independent company, Ace focuses on the development, production and distribution of licensed and unlicensed medicines. With its activities, Ace meets an essential social need: making and keeping scarce medication available for people for whom it is essential. It does so by actively collaborating with relevant stakeholders, including patient associations, doctors and governmental institutions. Since January 2020, Ace has also been supplying pharmaceutical compounding products to pharmacies in the Netherlands through its business unit Ace Compounding.

Oaklins’ debt advisory team in the Netherlands acted as advisor to the consortium and assisted in establishing a financing package aligned with the current business profile and future growth ambitions.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted the challenges and gaps in our industry in Europe. It makes our mission to make scarce medicines available more important than ever. We want to respond to this situation strongly by growing organically as well as through acquisitions in Europe. With the capital, the know-how and the broad (international) network of Gilde Buy Out Partners, Gilde Healthcare, and our existing investor Quadrum Capital, we can achieve this in both a socially responsible as well as financially sound manner.”
