Bain Capital Private Equity has agreed to acquire DSM Sinochem Pharmaceuticals (DSP), the global leader in sustainable antibiotics, next-generation statins and anti-fungals.
DSP is a 50/50 joint venture of Heerlen-based DSM and Sinochem of Beijing. DSM said it was paid about €250m for its stake in the group.
In 2017, DSP generated sales of approximately €440m. It has manufacturing sites and sales offices in China, India, the Netherlands, Spain, the US and Mexico, with approximately 2,000 employees.
‘DSM and Sinochem have been great supporters of our vision to be the global leader in generic pharmaceuticals,’ said Karl Rotthier, who heads DSP. ‘Bain Capital is now the ideal partner to drive DSP into its next stage of global development, given its deep healthcare expertise and operational skills across its worldwide team,’ he said.
