Capio Specialist Clinics acquires Scanloc

Capio Specialistkliniker AB has agreed to acquire 100% of the shares in Scanloc Healthcare AB as of September 30, 2016.

The company provides ophthalmology treatments in the county councils of Västra Götaland and Halland, and in 2015/2016 the company had net sales of about 37 MSEK and 35 employees. The acquisition strengthens Capio’s healthcare offering within ophthalmology.

Scanloc will be part of Capio Medocular in business area Capio Specialist Clinics. Capio Medocular was founded in 1986 and is today one of the largest private companies within ophthalmology treatments in the Nordics, specialized in general eye care, cataract surgery and treatment of sight disorders.

The acquisition, which is subject to approval by the authorities, is not expected to impact the Group’s earnings in 2016.
