CEGEDIM : acquisition of French company 01 Santé

This acquisition expands Cegedim Logiciels Medicaux's range of expertise in the field of oncology

PARIS--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Cegedim SA subsidiary Cegedim Logiciels Médicaux (CLM), software publisher and service provider to the medical profession, announces the acquisition of 01 Santé SA, publisher of "MegaBaze" medical software.

01 Santé occupies a strong position in the oncology field with its OncoBaze software, which is used by nearly 70 clinics in France, including 25 that rank among the country's largest. OncoBaze was notably chosen to equip the chemotherapy departments of Générale de Santé's clinics.

The acquisition confirms Cegedim's determination to develop in the field of oncology both in France and internationally.

"The acquisition of 01 Santé strengthens CLM's multispecialist position, with the notable addition of oncology, one of the most innovative medical fields," explained Régis Sénégou, CEO of Cegedim Logiciels Médicaux. "It also broadens our client base to include clinics in addition to private practices. This is a great fit with our development strategy and our determination to facilitate communication among healthcare professionals, as demonstrated by our secure messaging solution, Secure Medical Mail," he added.

"We are incredibly pleased to join a solid company with a bright future like Cegedim, whose international presence will open new doors for our products" said Dr. Peter El Baze, Chairman and founder of 01 Santé. "This will give us access to the technical infrastructure and proximity to clients that CLM enjoys thanks to its network of regional branches throughout France."

The deal was signed on 21 April 2008 and will be financed with equity. The businesses included in the deal represent annual revenues of around EUR 705 K and will have a positive impact on Cegedim Group's 2008 half-year accounts.
