Chequers Capital has sold Wörner Medizinprodukte Holding GmbH to DCC plc
Wörner was established in 1991 and has grown organically and through bolt-on acquisitions to become one of the leading primary care suppliers in the German market, providing nationwide sales and distribution coverage. Wörner also has a strong presence in the Swiss market. Wörner sells a broad product range to approximately 20,000 customers annually, including general practitioners, primary care centers, specialist medical centers and laboratories.
The acquisition of Wörner enables DCC to substantially expand its primary care distribution business by extending the footprint of its DCC Vital group into Continental Europe for the first time.
Lincoln International acted as the exclusive financial advisor to the seller, working closely with both Chequers Capital and the Wörner management team. Lincoln International managed a custom-tailored and competitive mergers and acquisitions (M&A) process.
