ARQIS advises Physio CKI on the entry of Kapital 1852

19. October 2023

ARQIS has advised the physiotherapy practice group Physio CKI on its expansion and the entry of growth partner Kapital 1852.

As part of a combined succession plan and expansion financing, the investment company Kapital 1852 Beratungs GmbH with the fund Kapital 1852 SCS SICAV-SIF Equity Invest IV “MidCapPlus” took a majority stake in the Physio CKI practice group.

Physio CKI, based in Bonn, employs over 100 professionals, over 70 percent of whom are therapeutic, and sees itself as a partner to its patients in the areas of therapy, well-being, and wellness. Within a few years of its foundation, Physio CKI is one of the largest regional market participants. The aim of the cooperation is to expand the group’s proven practice concept to further locations in the Rhine-Sieg and Cologne-Bonn metropolitan areas to strengthen healthcare in the region. Investments in the digitalisation of the company are also intended to make the services more accessible and improve the patient experience.

The founders of Physio CKI were accompanied in the transaction by Livingstone Partners (Christian Grandin, Philip Dorsemagen and Felix Baust) as M&A advisors. The ARQIS team led by Dr Jörn-Christian Schulze was invited to pitch on Livingstone´s recommendation, as ARQIS has particular healthcare expertise. In the healthcare and nursing sector, the ARQIS team has many years of experience in successfully accompanying financial investors.
