Investcorp has reached an agreement to acquire Cambio Healthcare Systems AB (“Cambio” or “the Company”) from Valedo Partners Fund II AB (“Valedo”) and a group of minority investors, primarily Cambio’s two founders, Tomas Mora-Morrison and Håkan Mattsson. Valedo invested in Cambio in 2012 and has, together with the Company’s management team and employees, transformed and significantly grown Cambio into a position as one of the leading regional European providers of eHealth solutions.
Cambio operates in the Electronic Health Records (“EHR”) market, offering software solutions for acute, primary, social and person-centred care. Cambio promotes a holistic view on health and social care and offers an EHR agnostic solution for clinical decision support applicable for all branches of health and social care. The Company, which has grown rapidly in recent years, has customers primarily in Sweden, Denmark and the United Kingdom, with more than 150,000 users of its software solutions. Cambio is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden and has approximately 600 employees, of which the majority are dedicated to research and development as well as software maintenance.
Peter Gille, CEO, Cambio Healthcare Systems, said; “eHealth is increasingly transforming how healthcare is delivered, and is a key enabler for further improvements of quality of care, productivity and patient empowerment. Cambio is clearly one of the leading providers in the Nordic and UK eHealth markets and I am very proud of Cambio’s achievements during the last few years where we have launched a number of very innovate software solutions, won several new customers and further deepened our cooperation with existing customers. Following more than six years with Valedo as a majority owner, we now look forward to continuing Cambio’s growth journey with the support of Investcorp.”
The terms and conditions of the transaction are not disclosed.
