Ingenico Group (EPA: ING), a leading integrated payment solution provider, has agreed to carve out its French healthcare business to Andera Partners (formerly Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners). This follows a competitive auction led by Bryan Garnier & Co, who advised Ingenico Group on its strategic options.

The divested business (now renamed “Olaqin”) was created in 2012 following the acquisition of Xiring by Ingenico Group in 2011. It develops and distributes healthcare terminals, software and integrated solutions for pharmacies, healthcare professionals and medical institutions.

The business already benefits from a leading position in France with strong regulatory and technical barriers to entry. In the context of a rapidly digitizing healthcare market in France, it is now expanding to healthcare transactions processing, securing this with the launch of a new cloud-based software offering (called Stellair).

Headquartered in Suresnes, France, the business generates €16m in revenue, a significant portion of which is recurring, and employs approximately 40 people.
