Main Capital Partners announced on Wednesday that it has acquired a majority stake in St. Wolfgang-based UHB Consulting, a German provider of healthcare software services. Main sees UHB as well positioned to capitalise on regulations introduced by Germany in 2019 to accelerate the digitalisation process in Germany’s healthcare ecosystem.
UHB provides customised ERP, controlling and financial services for more than 880 healthcare end users, including some of the largest hospitals and medical centres in Germany. The company expects to realise revenues of over €10 million this year.
Main will support UHB’s expansion into adjacent customer segments and broaden its offering via strategic add-on acquisitions.
“We were impressed by UHB’s well-rounded software solutions and strong positioning in the healthcare market,” said Yves Souren, senior investment manager at Main. ”We consider the open corporate culture at UHB to be an important pillar of the future path to success. Together with the experienced management, we want to expand the product portfolio and the value proposition for customers through a selective buy and build strategy in the next years.”
Main Capital is based in the Hague and invests in software companies in the Benelux, DACH and the Nordics. The firm has €2.2bn in assets under management. PE Hub Europe recently covered Main-backed BSC’s double Dutch acquisition of Medisoft and Tasper.
