Translink Corporate Finance announced the sale of Centaur Healthcare Limited (trading as “Surepharm”), a contract development manufacturing organisation predominantly servicing the pharmaceutical market, to Chiltern Capital, an ambitious and active private equity investor in the UK lower mid-market. Souters Investments and Bluester Capital co-invested alongside Chiltern with debt financing being provided by Thincats.
Surepharm provides a wide range of services from pilot plant facilities for formulation development and pre-production trials to outsourced development, manufacturing and packaging of its products for its customers in the UK and overseas. From its fully licensed and high tech facilities, Surepharm specialises in producing solid dose tablets and capsules including controlled drugs, niche medicines and specials for the human and veterinary markets.
Chiltern’s investment will support Surepharm to expand the capacity and capabilities of the company to drive faster growth and enhance its formulation and development offerings.
