CompuGroup Medical strengthens its market position in Italy

Acquisition of eHealth-provider Effepieffe srl

Koblenz, February 1, 2012: Yesterday evening, CompuGroup Medical signed a contract to purchase all shares in Effepieffe srl. via its Italian subsidiary CompuGroup Medical Italia spa. The company counts around 8,000 general practitioners as its customers and ranks number three in the provision of ambulatory information systems in Italy.

With its latest acquisition, CompuGroup Medical takes a further step in progressively extending its market position in Italy. Since 2006 the company has been running a strict growth strategy and is now, owning a 40% market share, the market leader in the field of primary care in Italy.

Strategically, Effepieffe focuses on the north-Italian market. Headquartered in Milan, the majority of Effepieffe’s customers are located in that area. Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG affirms: “Our strategy of expansion has proven successful; today we are a strong eHealth-provider in Italy. We will provide our new customers with access to our product and service portfolio to deliver optimum support for their patient care.”

One example is CGM Life eServices, online services for physician-patient-communication. CompuGroup Medical counts among the worldwide leading providers of eHealth-solutions. Through this acquisition customers benefit from international best practice and the company’s long-standing experience in this sector.

In 2011 the turnover of Effepieffe amounted to 1.2 million Euro. The EBITDA was at around 0.5 million Euro.
