Group Pyxidis

«The management of a sale process and its multi-party negotiations are complex. They must be carried out by teams of professionals with complementary skills. Potomac Transactions was able to meet my expectations and built the necessary conditions to choose a good buyer.
Their knowledge of the orthopaedic market, their negotiating skills and their permanent pragmatism were essential to finalize the transaction with the greatest efficiency and to find a solid partner for the development of the company that I have had the chance to lead for more than 20 years»

Fabrice Duprat, shareholder and historical CEO of Group Pyxidis

Pyxidis is the European leader in designing and manufacturing cases and trays for surgical instruments dedicated to the orthopedic sector.
Pyxidis had been held by Bridgepoint, a Franco-British private equity firm, alongside management since 2013. In 2017, the shareholders jointly instructed Potomac to structure the sale.
Pyxidis’s specific expertise attracted both financial and industrial investors. At the end of the negotiations, the shareholders chose In’Tech Medical Group, the European leader in manufacturing orthopedic instruments with a well-established US platform, to allow Pyxidis to grow faster in the US, a key market in the orthopedic sector. The two groups had common entrepreneurial values, strong commercial synergies and the desire to serve their clients even better.
