Nordstjernan has reached an agreement with the founding Larsson/Lewné family on acquiring a majority of the shares in Lideta Hälsovård (“Lideta”). Dr. Simon Larsson and Hugo Lewné will remain as shareholders in Lideta, and Mr. Lewné will also remain as CEO. 

Lideta engages in primary care via 15 units in Stockholm and southern Sweden. The company has grown rapidly since it was founded in 2001 by Dr. Larsson. The company currently has 93,000 listed patients, 350 employees and sales of approximately SEK 500 million. Over the last few years, Lideta has grown through acquisitions and invested in various digital initiatives to increase the accessibility and efficiency of primary care. 

Tomas Billing, CEO of Nordstjernan, says:

“Nordstjernan sees a major future need of high-quality private health care. We are becoming the majority shareholder in Lideta, a well-managed company, with the ambition of being part of and developing a high-quality company in Swedish health care over many years.”

“We are very pleased to get Nordstjernan as majority shareholder in Lideta. Our family looks forward to continuing to develop the company together with Nordstjernan.”

Lideta is Nordstjernan’s third investment in the care and health care sector. Since 2007, Nordstjernan has owned Etac, a global medical aid company whose offerings include products for people with impaired mobility. In 2015, Nordstjernan invested in the listed care company Attendo and is now the company’s largest shareholder.

Nordstjernan has a long tradition as an active shareholder in listed and private companies. Nordstjernan was founded in 1890 and its major shareholder is the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit.

The transaction is subject to approval from the relevant competition authorities, which is expected during the fourth quarter of 2017.

The parties have agreed not to publish the terms of the transaction.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
