Bain Capital Private Equity and Cinven Partners announce Public Delisting Tender Offer for the remaining STADA shares

  • STADA has been instructed to apply for a delisting of all STADA shares and STADA bonds
  • STADA to benefit from related cost and time savings
  • Offer price equal to the six months weighted average stock exchange price estimated to be EUR 81.83 per STADA share
  • Offer irrevocably supported by minority shareholder for approx. 12 percent of STADA shares


Frankfurt / Munich, 1 October 2018 - Nidda Healthcare GmbH ("Nidda Healthcare"), a company controlled by funds advised by Bain Capital Private Equity (Europe), LLP ("Bain Capital") and Cinven Partners LLP ("Cinven"), today announced its intention to launch a public delisting tender offer ("Offer") for all shares of STADA Arzneimittel AG ("STADA" or the "Company") not already held by Nidda Healthcare.

Nidda Healthcare, which currently holds approx. 65% of the STADA shares and therefore is the controlling shareholder of STADA, entered into a domination and profit and loss transfer agreement with the Company in December 2017, which became effective in March 2018 ("DPLTA"). Today, Nidda Healthcare has instructed the management board of STADA to apply for the revocation of the admission of all STADA shares to trading on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (General Standard) and the Duesseldorf Stock Exchange and the revocation of the admission of the EUR 300,000,000 1.750% fixed rate notes with maturity in 2022 issued by STADA ("STADA bonds") from the regulated market on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. The delisting will enable STADA to save considerable costs related to the maintenance of a stock listing, to reduce regulatory burden and to free up further management capacity. At the same time, STADA does not require access to equity capital markets for the foreseeable future due to its access to alternative funding sources.

Nidda Healthcare will offer the shareholders of STADA a cash consideration per STADA share equal to an amount of the weighted average domestic stock exchange price of STADA shares during the last six months prior to its announcement of the decision to make a public delisting tender offer as will be determined by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority ("BaFin"). Nidda Healthcare estimates this amount to be EUR 81.83. It would represent a premium of approx. 24 percent on the offer price of EUR 66.25 per STADA share during the successful takeover offer in 2017, and a premium of 10 percent on the cash compensation of EUR 74.40 offered to minority shareholders in the context of the DPLTA. Nidda Healthcare has received irrevocable undertakings from two STADA shareholders, which are under common control, to accept the Offer for all of their STADA shares, i.e. approximately 12 percent of the share capital of the Company, and for any STADA shares subsequently acquired.

The Offer will be unconditional. The acceptance period will be four weeks. There will be no additional acceptance period.

The planned delisting may have extensive consequences for the STADA shares and remaining shareholders of STADA. STADA shareholders who will not accept the Offer will, after effectiveness of the delisting application, no longer have access to a regulated market for the STADA shares, which may detrimentally affect the ability to trade in STADA shares. Furthermore, it cannot be ruled out that the stock market price for STADA shares will be adversely affected by the application for and the effectiveness of the delisting.

The definite terms of the Offer will be included in the offer document which will be published on the internet following the approval of the publication by BaFin. The acceptance period will begin after publication of the offer document.

Nidda Healthcare is being advised by JP Morgan and Kirkland & Ellis on this transaction.

The offer document and all other information about the Offer will be published on the following website:
