Translink advised Texpol’s shareholders on its 100% sale to Allmed Medical Products

Translink Corporate Finance advised the shareholders of Texpol (Textil Planas Oliveras), a leading Spanish manufacturer of single-use surgical dressings that offers a wide range of medical devices, on its 100% sale to Allmed Medical Products, the largest Chinese manufacturer and exporter of wound care products, providing a worldwide range of traditional wound care products.

Since the transaction involves a company in a critical sector with relevant market share in the Spanish market, the authorization of the Spanish antitrust authority and the Spanish foreign investment committee was required.

Founded in 1949 in Manresa (50km north-west of Barcelona), Texpol is a company engaged in the production of single-use surgical dressings and offers a wide range of medical devices for the hospital, clinical and care sector, as well as to the end consumer via the pharmacy channel. Texpol is present in 80% of public hospitals and in 70% of private hospitals in Spain.

The company has two plants located in Manresa and Toledo (70km south of Madrid) with more than 25,800 m2 equipped with advanced technology, clean rooms, best practice sterilization process and its own certified laboratories to ensure highest standards during all phases of the production process.

Its product portfolio consists of 3 core business lines (Swabs, Bandages and Cotton) and complementary product lines (Drug labels, Diabetes, Disinfectants, Incontinency and Laparoscopic forceps). Texpol’s core business enjoys a c.50% market share in Spain.

Founded in 1997, Allmed Medical Products Co. Ltd is a listed company that engages in the research and development, manufacture, and distribution of medical dressings and other disposable medical supplies.

Allmed is the largest manufacturer and exporter of wound care products in China, providing a worldwide range of traditional wound care products, including gauze swabs, non-woven swabs, lap sponges, fluffy bandages, abdominal pads, non-stick pads, adhesive bandages, elastic bandages, impregnated gauzes, medical kits, and disposable drapes, etc. As a leading player in the industry, Allmed also has large presence in advanced wound care and nursing material products.

The acquisition of Texpol will enable Allmed to acquire the ideal platform to introduce Allmed’s products to the Spanish market through Texpol’s distribution channel.

  • “The decision to sell the family business which I had built up over 35 years was one of the hardest of my life. BHP was selected as our preferred advisor due to their experience, professional approach and association with Translink.

    Translink proved to be a winner. We received global interest, from across Europe, the USA and China.

  • “Based on our earlier contact and recommendations we chose Translink Corporate Finance as our M&A adviser, being responsible for the transaction process and finding the best future partner for us – a partner and co-shareholder who could help us to realize the significant growth potential we see in our industry. In the middle of the operation the corona outbreak occurred – and controlling the process during this phase was not easy.
    Translink Corporate Finance presented a significant list with very relevant international candidates, and a Danish buyer ended up making the best offer. The process was guided and controlled in a very professional way by Henrik and Claus.”

    Steffen Vogel, former owner of Cortex Technology
  • “We would like to thank Translink Denmark for facilitating the Healthcare Group’s entry into Northern Europe.

We extend our thanks to Translink Corporate Finance and look forward to many years of continued growth in the region.”

    Brett Valliant, Corporate development director, Diploma Healthcare Group
  • “When we chose that it was time to raise capital to AlfaNordic Group A/S to live out our ambitions, we went to Schrøder Translink for assistance. It quickly became clear that the right thing to do was to put the shares up for sale. In this sales process we have found that Translink's network has been invaluable in finding suitable buyers internationally. We experienced great interest both from Denmark and from abroad. Through a sometimes very hard process, we have had a good and constructive collaboration with Translink, which has probably been decisive for the final good result.”

    Thomas Melgaard Petersen and Henrik Linnemann, former owners of AlfaNordic
  • "This transaction will allow us to seize significant growth opportunities in the North American market and, at the same time, create synergies in every operational area. I was impressed by the ability of Translink to originate this opportunity for us so close to the profile we were seeking in such a competitive market. This was our first acquisition outside of Italy. Nevertheless, Translink was able to make this complex and new experience, both in terms of norms and culture, seem familiar and manageable for us. I highly recommend Translink for companies wishing to expand abroad and especially for those interested in the United States.”
