Hogan Lovells advises Fresenius Kabi on divestment of Halden plant in Norway

Press releases | 23 November 2023

Led by Frankfurt partner Dr Torsten Rosenboom, global law firm Hogan Lovells has advised global healthcare company Fresenius Kabi AG on the divestment of the Fresenius Kabi plant in Halden, Norway, to HP Halden Pharma AS, a company of the Prange Group.

Earlier this year, Fresenius Kabi announced its intention to sell the plant in Halden. This follows the company's Vision 2026 strategy, a comprehensive and global framework for sustainable growth as well as cost and efficiency improvements. 

In the next coming months, the Prange Group, together with its affiliate Adragos Pharma, will take over the Halden plant including equipment and staff, and will continue operations as a contract manufacturing organization for Fresenius Kabi and external customers. Fresenius Kabi’s Norwegian marketing unit will not be affected by the divestment.  

Hogan Lovells has advised Fresenius Kabi on all legal issues in relation to the divestment.
