Communiqués de presse - 14 September 2023
The Investment bank Largillière Finance advised the founders of Imagerie.fr, operator of a dozen medical imaging centers, on its sale to Oradianse.
Created in 2020 by Dr Pierre Durand and Éric Le Bihan, Imagerie.fr is an operator of medical imaging and teleradiology centers. Its aim is to make radiology examinations accessible to as many people as possible, especially in high-tension areas or medical deserts, at prices affordable to all.
The Group has developed an efficient model using digital levers across the whole care pathway, as well as a secure proprietary technological platform integrating artificial intelligence and blockchain. Examinations are done on site, but results are interpreted remotely. Headquartered in Grenoble, the group operates 12 centers across France, staffed by more than 80 employees, including 12 radiologists.
Oradianse is also a network of local radiology centers. Its aim is to meet the growing needs of French patients, by combining on-site and remote activities to maintain a regional radiology offer. Headquartered in Bordeaux, Oradianse brings together over a hundred medical practices throughout France, more than 330 radiologists and over 2,600,000 patient files processed annually.
To step up its growth, Imagerie.fr was looking for a partner and appointed Largillière Finance. Thanks to its in-depth knowledge of the healthcare sector, Largillière Finance is now involved in its 3rd transaction in this sector, following its support over the last 12 months for BELILAB Laboratories in their merger with BIOPATH Laboratoires, and for the XLabs laboratory network in the setting up of a structured financing package with CIC. For Imagerie.fr, Largillière Finance quickly identified and successfully completed the transaction with Oradianse, which thus strengthened its territorial coverage, particularly in eastern France.
Dr Pierre Durand, CEO and co-founder of Imagerie.fr, comments: "We are delighted with our partnership with the Oradianse group. We share the same values of quality, innovation and excellence in serving patients and healthcare professionals. The involvement of Largillière Finance, their knowledge of the healthcare market and their ability to structure and transform into opportunities the specificities inherent in healthcare activities have been decisive for this project, which consolidates our objective of guaranteeing access to quality local imaging for all."
Shamir Razavhoussen, Managing Director at Largillière comments: "The radiology sector is facing technological developments requiring significant resources (AI, telemedicine, new equipment...) and the retirement of many radiologists. These challenges are accelerating the current consolidation process, and our expertise in these areas enabled us to successfully support the completion of this transaction."
