CURANUM AG, Munich, will be taking over the operation of seven care
facilities of the Dr. Lohbeck-Gruppe in Schwelm. The locations
comprise a total of 890 care places and are currently generating
sales of EUR 22.0 million, at an EBITDA margin of 6.5%.
The establishments are located in Schwelm, Ennepetal, Wuppertal,
Hagen and Iserlohn in North-Rhine Westphalia and are situated in the
direct vicinity of existing CURANUM AG facilities. High synergy
effects by the bundling of secondary services and flexible personnel
deployment will bolster the earnings power of the new and the
existing establishments. Additional margin enhancing factors are
lower costs of materials thanks to the central CURANUM purchasing
organization, and an increase in capacity utilization.
As of January 1, 2006, CURANUM will be leasing the seven facilities
at an annual lease payment of EUR 7.5 million for a period of 15
years (+ 2 x 5 years option). The company will make an advance lease
payment of EUR 10.0 million, which will be set off against the lease
payments during the contractual period.
With a look to the next year, CURANUM AG is planning to increase the
sales revenues of the new facilities to EUR 23.3 million, and
generate EBITDA of around EUR 2.0 million.
In Bad Lauterberg, Lower Saxony, CURANUM AG will open up a new
facility with 131 care places and 18 sheltered living apartments in
autumn of 2006. High synergy effects by the bundling of secondary
services with existing CURANUM facilities in Lower Saxony are also
expected in this new facility.
