The terms of the capital increase provide for the issuance of new shares at a price of R$ 13.00 per share, representing a premium of 89% over the market value, based on a recent valuation by XP Finanças Assessoria Financeira Ltda. The funds raised will be used to reduce the company’s consolidated debt, improve its cash position, maintain its growth strategy, continue its organic expansion plans, and for general corporate use.

Josephina Multi-Strategy Equity Investment Fund and Josephina II Multi-Strategy Equity Investment Fund (together the “FIPs”), investment vehicles of Goldman Sachs, have agreed to transfer their respective preferential rights to the investors of Quíron and Tessália as part of the capital increase.

Daniel Vorcaro, President of Banco Master, emphasized that “…Healthcare is one of the markets with the greatest growth potential in Brazil in the coming years, whether in the pharmaceutical industry, primary care or high value-added services, arenas where Oncoclínicas&Co occupies a prominent position in Latin America. Being part of a company that is revolutionizing access to oncology treatments in the country, alongside Goldman Sachs, is a great opportunity and indeed a privilege for our company to undertake.”

According to João Padin, Vice President of Corporate Equity Investments at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, the transaction demonstrates the attractiveness and strength of Oncoclínicas&Co’s business model.

“The funds raised are important for continuing the growth strategy and strengthening the Group’s capital structure. In this way, Oncoclínicas&Co underlines the solidity of its business and its commitment to the quality of the services offered to patients,” he added.
