8 Jun

A large conglomerate headquartered in China has a primary business in single-use medical devices, with a wide range of product lines in consumables, orthopedic materials, and blood purification. The group also has subsidiaries in biopharmaceutical, healthcare services, finance, and real estate. The firm is actively expanding its healthcare business in China. The group is seeking product-based collaboration opportunities with early stage medical device businesses overseas, primarily through joint venture or incubation. Typical investments range from RMB 1-30 million (US$0.1 – 4.4 M), while there is no set upper limit. The firm would also consider in-licensing opportunities.

The firm is focusing on medical devices with an elevated interest in coronary stent, vascular ultrasound, endoscope, and surgical devices. The firm is also interested in medical technologies that are complimentary to its product line, which includes: i) consumables (infusion sets, syringes, medical needles, blood bags, pre-filled syringes, blood sampling products, and other consumables); ii) orthopedic materials and iii) blood purification consumables and equipment. The group prefers products that have received FDA clearance/approval or at early commercial stage, while it is also open to projects that are pending an FDA decision. The group would also consider biopharmaceutical assets in kidney diseases.

The firm is seeking strong management teams with mature products that have received or are close to receiving regulatory approval.
