Antin Infrastructure Partners (“AIP”), one of Europe’s largest independent infrastructure investment firms, has acquired a majority stake in INICEA, a leading group of French psychiatric clinics, from LFPI.
With 10 clinics representing almost 1,170 beds and day care places, INICEA is the leading independent private operator dedicated to psychiatric care in France. Founded in 1982, INICEA has developed a unique offer with a strong medical focus supported by 1,000 employees and 50 private psychiatrists under contract, and has become a reference in day care, care for adolescents in psychological difficulty and treatment of eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia) in France.
AIP will bring its expertise in social infrastructure to contribute to INICEA’s development and help the group to further strengthen its leading position as a pure-player in a field that faces growing needs.
CASE Corporate Finance advised AIP in this pre-emptive transaction on both M&A and debt advisory.
