Bregal Unternehmerkapital acquires INTER-FORUM

Thanks to its unique set-up, Bregal Unternehmerkapital can offer founders a succession solution with a focus on confidentiality, execution security and building long-term value within the business. For this reason, the founder of Leipzig-based INTER-FORUM, a market leader in IT-based billing services in the German healthcare market, has decided to place his company in the hands of Bregal Unternehmer­kapital as he steps down. Bregal will build on the company’s established reputation for quality and service in order to create additional opportunities and drive forward organic growth.

Bregal was selected on the basis of its extensive experience in succession situations in the German SME sector, its understanding of outsourcing and service issues and its long-term approach to investment.

INTER-FORUM has operated successfully in the exciting and increasingly important healthcare market for over 25 years. The company's key focus is on the auditing of bills for services delivered by pharmacies and by other service providers for holders of statutory health insurance. INTER-FORUM also collects and processes data for structured disease management programmes (DMP), develops, implements and maintains billing audit and authorisation software, and develops IT-based assessments and analyses for companies in the healthcare sector. INTER-FORUM was originally founded in Leipzig in 1990 under the name ABK Systeme GmbH. Today, INTER-FORUM employs around 1,000 people and is one of the seven largest employers in the region. Its customers include Germany’s leading statutory health insurance companies.

We look forward to providing INTER-FORUM with sustained long-term support and helping the company to build on its existing success.
