September 25th, 2019 Natixis Partners acted as exclusive financial advisor to Ardian in the sale of Ionisos to 3i Infrastructure

Ardian announced the sale of Ionisos to 3i Infrastructure alongside Management.

Established in 1993 in Civrieux, France, Ionisos is the third largest cold sterilization provider globally and operates a network of 11 plants in Europe with leading positions on the French and Spanish markets. It has over 200 employees and a highly diversified and loyal client base of more than 1,000 clients most of which operating in the healthcare industry.

The need for pharmaceutical products and medical instruments and the associated sterilization services are driven by attractive market fundamentals and non-cyclical market drivers, including an ageing population in Western Europe, a growing demand for medical services and equipment, as well as strong regulation on sterilization of medical and pharmaceutical products. Recurring business components, client stickiness and revenues predictability have been amongst the key considerations in this transaction.
