Noerr advises NORD Holding on acquisition of implant manufacturer HG Medical


A team led by Noerr’s Munich Private Equity partner Holger Ebersberger have advised NORD Holding on the acquisition of implant manufacturer HG Medical. The seller is HG DARCO Group, LLC, from which NORD Holding is acquiring the shares of HG Medical GmbH and HG Medical USA, LLC.

The engagement also includes advising on the financing of the acquisition. The Noerr Finance team is headed by Torsten Wehrhahn and Michael Schuhmacher.

HG Medical is a vertically integrated contract manufacturer of orthopaedic implants. Its customers include in particular FDA-regulated US medical technology companies that HG Medical supports in the technical implementation of product innovations, development services and individual customer solutions. It specialises in technically challenging and complex implants.

The company currently has 143 employees at two locations: Raisting, Bavaria and Huntington, West Virginia, USA.

HG Medical’s new shareholder, NORD Holding, is a leading private equity asset manager with holdings of more than €2 billion. This spring, a Noerr team led by Holger Ebersberger advised NORD Holding on the acquisition of a majority stake in the IT service provider EWERK.
