GÖRG advises vendors on sale of Ebert + Jacobi to NOWEDA


[Munich/Cologne, ] A team from GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB, headed by Munich partner Andreas Peter and Cologne partner Dr. Alexander Kessler, advised the shareholders of Ebert + Jacobi GmbH & Co. KG in the sale of their entire holding to Essen-based pharmacy cooperative NOWEDA eG.

Ebert + Jacobi, a traditional company founded in Würzburg in 1884, supplies some 2,000 pharmacies across Germany – from Lower Saxony to Bavaria – and, with a staff of over 600, has an annual turnover of about EUR 750 million. This made Ebert + Jacobi the largest owner-managed pharmaceutical wholesaler in the country. NOWEDA came out on top of the bidding process, which was managed by KPMG Deal Advisory. NOWEDA is a pharmacist-owned enterprise with a total turnover of EUR 5.6 billion.  The takeover is expected to complete on 1 January 2017, subject only to approval of the merger by the Federal Cartel Office. The parties agreed to keep the value of the deal confidential.
