IK Investment Partners: IK Investment Partners to acquire ZytoService

IK Investment Partners ("IK") is pleased to announce that the IK VIII
Fund has reached an agreement to acquire ZytoService Group
("ZytoService" or "the Company"), a leading compounder of

Founded in 2002, ZytoService is one of the largest industrially

patient-individualised infusions applied mainly in oncology treatment
in Germany. The Company is based in Hamburg, where it runs a
state-of-the-art compounding facility.

"We are delighted to be working with IK going forward. ZytoService
operates in an industry in which IK has extensive expertise, and with
their support we will be well placed to further expand our competence
and provide the best service to our customers," said Enno Scheel,
Co-Founder of ZytoService.

"We firmly believe in the strengths of partnering with IK. Together,
we will continue investing in the business to better address the
growing demands of the German healthcare market," added Thomas Boner,
Co-Founder of ZytoService.

Mr Enno Scheel and Mr Thomas Boner, Co-Founders and Co-CEOs of
ZytoService will remain with the business in managerial roles, and
will be shareholders alongside IK.

"Thanks to IK's experience in the relevant sector, we quickly
recognised ZytoService's potential. We look forward to backing the
management team and expanding the Company's operational capabilities.
We believe ZytoService is ideally positioned to develop further and
provide highest quality services to its customers," said Detlef
