IMCD to acquire Brazilian pharma distributor Selectchemie

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek advised IMCD, a leading international speciality chemical-focussed distributor on reaching an agreement on the acquisition of Selectchemie LTDA in Brazil. Selectchemie is a leading distributor of pharmaceutical ingredients in Brazil, representing world-leading producers from the US, Europe and Asia. The portfolio includes an extensive range of excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients which complements IMCD’s existing position in Brazil.

This is IMCD’s second acquisition in Brazil, which is a major market in terms of pharmaceutical ingredient distribution and growth opportunities. In 2013, De Brauw lead partner Anja Mutsaers also advised IMCD on its first acquisition, of Brazilian speciality chemical distributor Makeni Chemicals.
