London, UK, 20 September 2023: PharmaVentures is pleased to announce it recently acted as exclusive M&A advisor on the sale of a European pharmaceutical services operation to a US corporation.

PharmaVentures led the complete sale process right through to closing. Both parties to the deal have chosen not to announce it publicly.

The sale is one of a number that PharmaVentures has completed in recent years and in a sector where it continues to excel including advising major pharmaceutical companies in the divestment of their manufacturing operations to key players in the pharmaceutical services sector.

The pharmaceutical services sector that includes CROs, CDMOs and other specialist consultancies has been undergoing significant change over recent years. Both new technological advances and the drive to reduce costs continue to provide an opportunity for both private equity and specialist companies to grow and diversify as the pharmaceutical industry evolves.

This transaction highlights our track record in supporting the sale of specialist pharmaceutical services companies in the pharmaceutical industry,” said Dr Fintan Walton, CEO and Founder of PharmaVentures. “Our decades of experience in M&A, together with our detailed knowledge of the pharmaceutical services industry enabled us to deliver the optimal deal for our client.”
