Vinge advises EQT Healthcare Growth, a new dedicated healthcare buy-out strategy introduced by EQT, in connection with its first investment – the acquisition of the biotech company, Mabtech, from IK Small Cap II Fund and several minority sellers.

EQT Healthcare Growth is a new buy-out strategy that builds on EQT’s 30-year healthcare track record, focused on scaling innovative, fast-growing healthcare companies to help deliver positive outcomes across the value chain. By helping companies build commercial muscle and expand their global reach, the strategy aims to enable the development of medical research, diagnostics, tools and treatments to deliver more efficient and accessible healthcare.

Mabtech is a category leading provider of tests and kits for studying immune responses predominantly in vaccine, infectious diseases, and oncology research. The company is based in Sweden and has over 900 customers in more than 60 countries. EQT Healthcare Growth will support Mabtech as it looks to expand its scale and reach.

The transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals and is expected to close in Q1 2024.
