International pharmaceutical group Recordati has acquired 100% stake in Italian pharmaceutical company Italchimici for €130m.

Recordati has made the acquisition from Progressio SGR, manager of the fund Progressio Investimenti II, IDeA Capital Funds SGR, manager of the fund Fondo IDeA Efficienza Energetica e Sviluppo Sostenibile, and from managers of Italchimici itself.

Recordati chairman and chief executive officer Giovanni Recordati said: “The acquisition of Italchimici represents an excellent opportunity to accelerate growth within the group, and in particular the Italian market, with an interesting portfolio of well-known products that have significant market shares.

“We are developing a growing presence within the area of gastroenterology and the consolidated Italchimici brands, much appreciated by the medical community, represent a valid complement to our current portfolio.”

“The acquisition of Italchimici represents an excellent opportunity to accelerate growth within the group, and in particular the Italian market.”

The €130m transaction value will be funded by Recordati from existing liquidity.

Progressio chief executive officer Filippo Gaggini said: “Thanks to extraordinary managers such as Riccardo Zagaria (CEO), Emanuele Loiacono (Commercial Director), Barbara Mazza (Strategic Marketing Director) and Riccardo Baraldi (CFO), we have been able to complete a very interesting transaction in the pharmaceutical sector.
