The sale of the Lusíadas Gggrroup, which is currently owned by the world’s largest private healthcare group, US-based United Healthcare, is generating a buzz. On the table, there are six non-binding proposals, many of them foreign, mainly from Spanish companies.
According to Expresso, among the proposals presented is one from Luz Saúde, which presented a non-binding proposal but refuses to make any official comment, as well as groups such as Viamed, Quirónsalud, Vithas or HM Hospitales. Given the interest, this sale promises to be a competitive one as there is a lot of capital in venture funds to be invested and few interesting assets available.
Besides Luz Saúde, other groups already based in Portugal such as Ageas, which owns Médis, CUF and Trofa Saúde have shown interest in acquiring Lusíadas Group, but there is no confirmation that offers have been made. A potential operation is estimated to be worth around €200 million and is being advised by Bank of America in Madrid.
