GSK Stockmann advises hospital group Recura on the acquisition of Fachklinik Waldeck

GSK Stockmann advised Recura Kliniken SE on the acquisition of Fachklinik Waldeck out of insolvency through an insolvency plan.

On 07 October 2021, the insolvency plan for the complete takeover of Fachklinik Waldeck, which was unanimously approved by the meeting of creditors, became legally binding. In the insolvency plan proceedings, Recura Kliniken SE and FuturaMed-Gesellschaft für modernes Management im Gesundheitswesen GmbH had signed a corresponding investor agreement and implemented it through an insolvency plan. In mid-May 2021, Fachklinik Waldeck had initiated a protective shield proceeding in order to undergo fundamental restructuring under its own direction and to reposition itself for the future.

Recura, with its broad industry experience in the operation of specialist clinics, was won as a long-term partner for the concept of restructuring the specialist clinic in Schwaan. Georg Abel, Managing Director of Recura Kliniken SE, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Fachklinik Waldeck, an experienced specialist in early neurological rehabilitation, to the Recura network. We are aware of the specialist clinic’s importance as a healthcare provider in the region. As the new operator, it is our goal of the clinic to continue to live up to this responsibility and the clinic’s good reputation.”

GSK Stockmann comprehensively advised Recura with a team led by partner Raoul Kreide in the proceedings, which were prominently led by Professor Gerrit Hölzle (Görg) and administrator Christoph Morgen (Brinkmann & Partner), in particular on the structuring of the takeover deal and the insolvency plan. Georg Abel, Co-CEO of Recura SE, said: “The GSK Stockmann team provided us with very good tactical and strategic support, even in hectic phases. We were provided with excellent support at all times and guided safely through the insolvency plan process.”
