The Munich-based restructuring specialist mutares AG (ISIN: DE000A0SMSH2)
has sold the pharmaceutical contract manufacturer Suir Pharma Ireland to
the strategic investor Saneca Pharmaceuticals. With its second successful
exit in 2015, mutares further streamlines its portfolio.

Suir Pharma Ireland (SPI) was acquired in 2012 from German STADA Group. It
operates as a Contract Manufacturing Organisation (CMO) producing finished
dosage formulations across a broad range of therapeutic areas for various
customers worldwide and operates the only Independent Beta-Lactam FDA
approved facility in Europe.

After successfully accomplishing the main challenge of making SPI a
stand-alone pharmaceutical contract manufacturer, mutares has decided to
sell SPI to Saneca Pharmaceuticals for an undisclosed amount. Hence,
mutares continues to streamline its portfolio and to free up capacities for
new transactions as the deal pipeline is very promising.

Saneca Pharmaceuticals is confident that this strategic acquisition will
add significantly to the services that the Saneca Group can offer to its
customers. Lubo Soltys, President of Saneca, commented: "We are delighted
to have acquired Suir Pharma. We see the combined entity providing
significantly enhanced pharmaceutical development capacity and tech
transfer capabilities across a range of pharmaceutical forms. This will
certainly provide easier access to various markets for our worldwide
customer base."
