International law firm White & Case LLP has acted for Deutsche Bank AG in connection with the financing of health care company Fresenius Group's ('Fresenius') intended offer to acquire German hospital operator Rhoen-Klinikum AG ('Rhoen-Klinikum').
Fresenius plans to finance the acquisition through a syndicated loan, a bond issue and equity instruments worth up to €1 billion.
"This is a significant transaction and demonstrates the Firm's ability to work seamlessly across multiple offices," said White & Case partner R. Jake Mincemoyer.
The team from White & Case was led by partners R. Jake Mincemoyer (London) and Leila Roeder (Munich), with support from Rob Mathews (London), Lee Cullinane (London), Eric Berg (New York), Alexander Kiefner (Frankfurt), Matthias Kiesewetter (Frankfurt), Benedikt Gillessen (Frankfurt) and London associates Wesley Budler, Jill Concannon, Shanan Dunstan, Emma Foster, Simon Ngu, Kimberly Skipsey and trainee Helen Steininger.
Fresenius has stated it intends to combine Rhoen-Klinikum AG with HELIOS, creating Germany's largest private hospital owner, and that it expects to close the deal by the end of September.
