Following the end of the initial acceptance period of the offer, Capio controls 67,841,018 shares and votes in GHP, corresponding to approximately 96.6 percent of the total number of shares shares and votes in GHP [1]

As a result, all conditions for completion of the offer have been satisfied and Capio has declared the offer unconditional. The settlement of the Offer will begin on or around May 2, 2022. Capio intends to initiate a compulsory acquisition procedure in accordance with Swedish regulations. 

I am delighted by the positive outcome of this project and would like to welcome the GHP team to the Ramsay Santé Group. This ambitious project brings together the expertise of GHP Specialty Care with 300,000 patients visit per year in 23 facilities in Sweden and 1 in Denmark with the one of Capio in the Nordics. This will consolidate the Group's positions for the benefit of the patients by offering an additional coverage to that of the activities already held. The complementarity of the two structures should enable us to achieve €6 million in synergies in the medium term.

Pascal Roché, Ramsay Santé Group CEO
