BID Equity acquires majority stakes in the Regas Group and Heimbas to build a leading European software group in the social care sector
In December 2017 German software investor BID Equity has simultaneously acquired majority stakes in the Dutch Regas Group and German Heimbas GmbH. The investment has been made via BID Equity Fund III, which is backed by the international multi-strategy asset manager LFPI Group as cornerstone investor. BID Equity Fund III focuses on investments in European software companies in the social care sector. Key management members reinvested in the newly formed group.
Regas provides cloud-based electronic patient file software with flexible and adaptable workflow solutions for clients in the care sector ranging from social shelters to youth and mental care providers in the Benelux. In Germany, the company provides software in the youth care segment. Since its foundation in 1997 Regas became the market leader in several market segments in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
Heimbas is a specialized social software provider with close to 30 years of experience in the German elderly care segment. The company offers software solutions for outpatient, inpatient and semi-inpatient care covering critical customer processes end-to-end, incl. documentation, quality and risk management, as well as billing. Heimbas complements the product offering of Regas and increases the German footprint of the group.
Together, Regas and Heimbas provide a unique product offering in Benelux and Germany. “These acquisitions mark the foundation for yet another high-growth and high-margin software investment platform. The management team and BID Equity are united by a vision to create the leading provider of specialized software for the European social care space.”, according to the BID Equity Team.
