Munich — Liberta Part­ners (“LIBERTA”) acqui­res Medas Facto­ring GmbH (“MEDAS”) from the company’s foun­der Klaus Brecht in the course of a succes­sion situa­tion. The two mana­ging direc­tors of MEDAS, Jördis Wehr­stedt and Peter Wieland, are parti­ci­pa­ting in the company toge­ther with Liberta.

MEDAS is a service provi­der for physi­ci­ans of all special­ties, clinics and other custo­mers from the medi­cal profes­si­ons with priva­tely insu­red pati­ents. MEDAS offers a compre­hen­sive fee manage­ment, which inclu­des the prepa­ra­tion of invoices, but also the corre­spon­ding control inclu­ding the dispatch and the dunning process for the private liqui­da­tion. A total of around 1,500 custo­mers are served from the company’s head­quar­ters in Munich. Around 1 million invoices with a billing volume of appro­xi­mately EUR 200 million are proces­sed annu­ally. The custo­mer network extends across Bava­ria, Berlin, North Rhine-West­­pha­­lia and Baden-Würt­­te­m­­berg, with the focus curr­ently on Bavaria.

Commen­ting on the sale, company foun­der Klaus Brecht said: “I am plea­sed to have found a strong share­hol­der for MEDAS in LIBERTA. LIBERTA, with its entre­pre­neu­rial approach to deve­lo­p­ment, will help MEDAS to conti­nue to grow as a company. This is a posi­tive signal for our long-stan­­ding custo­mers, employees and part­ners, as the succes­sion is now secu­red for the long term.”

The manage­ment of MEDAS, Jördis Wehr­stedt and Peter Wieland added “We are plea­sed about the entry of LIBERTA and look opti­misti­cally into the future. LIBERTA’s exper­tise promi­ses a steady and sustainable further deve­lo­p­ment of MEDAS. We look forward to LIBERTA’s support and new approaches.”

Nils von Wietz­low, Part­ner of LIBERTA (photo, © Liberta Part­ners) and respon­si­ble for succes­sion solu­ti­ons, under­li­ned: “MEDAS is an estab­lis­hed company with a strong name. Its excel­lent repu­ta­tion in the market will form the basis for further growth. We see poten­tial for such growth both orga­ni­cally and inor­ga­ni­cally. At the same time, we would like to conti­nue to drive the digi­tiz­a­tion trend in order to prepare MEDAS for new requi­re­ments. We would like to thank Klaus Brecht for the trust he has placed in us and will closely accom­pany MEDAS on the path we are stri­ving for.”

This is the eighth invest­ment of Liberta Part­ners Fund II, which closed in Octo­ber 2019. The fund invests in group spin-offs and succes­sion situa­tions of family busi­nes­ses with a strong focus on suppor­ting the opera­tio­nal deve­lo­p­ment of its port­fo­lio companies.
