Ardian will accompany the Santé Cie Group and its subsidiaries, Elivie and Asdia, in their international expansion and enhancing their medical expertise.

Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, today announces that it has signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Santé Cie, a specialist in home medical assistance. Ardian will invest alongside HLD and UI Gestion, company shareholders since 2015, and the management team, to continue the consolidation of the French market and develop internationally.

With this investment, Ardian will enter the home medical assistance market. It offers the Group the opportunity to operate in a new, particularly attractive healthcare segment, while having a very positive social and societal impact. Santé Cie’s business addresses deep demographic, sociological and health challenges tied to an ageing population, an increasing prevalence of chronic illnesses, and a medical desertification in French rural areas.
