Malmö, May 30th 2016
It is a great pleasure for me to announce that EQT has agreed to sell Atos Medical to PAI Partners.
Based in Paris, France, PAI Partners is one of Europe’s leading private equity companies with a strong track record and experience within the healthcare sector.
Thank you, EQT!
Since their acquisition of Atos in 2011, EQT has supported us in implementing our strategy and in building a solid foundation for Atos’ continued growth.
I would like to thank EQT, led by Åsa Riisberg, Mads Ditlevsen, and Christian Shin Hoegh Andersen, for their trust and support throughout this period.

Capturing our Core continues!
At Atos, we have pursued our Capturing our Core strategy since the summer of 2014. During this period, we have invested to grow our sales presence in core markets, connected with our end-users to deliver impactful new products, and engaged with our markets through our new direct-to-consumer initiative.
The results of our efforts are very strong, and would never have been possible without the inspiration and dedication of the entire Atos team.
For that I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of our employees.
Like us, PAI Partners believes fully in our Capturing our Core strategy. Therefore, the change in ownership will not alter our direction, priorities or ambitions.
Welcome PAI Partners!
We are very excited to now partner with PAI Partners to continue to grow our company. PAI Partners shares Atos’ ambition to rapidly grow our business within our core markets, and wishes to invest in our company to further accelerate our efforts and expand our organization.
We believe that PAI Partners, with its industrial approach, healthcare sector capabilities, and global network, is an ideal partner for Atos to fully realize our strategy and growth ambitions.
The PAI Partners team, led by Ragnar Hellenius, Partner and Head of the PAI Nordic team, will visit us in Hörby in the near future to introduce PAI Partners to all of our employees.
