KKR and Stefano Pessina reduce the stake held through Sprint Investments 2 GmbH from 25% to slightly above 20%, thereby significantly increasing the free float of the Galenica share (shares in circulation).
In 1999, the Galenica Group and Alliance Boots formed a strategic partnership that granted Alliance Boots a 25% stake in the Galenica Group. Although the ownership structure of the share package changed with the investment of private equity firm KKR in 2007 and the merger of Alliance Boots and Walgreens in 2014 – it is currently held by Sprint Investments 2 GmbH – KKR and Stefano Pessina have continued to assist and support Galenica in recent years.
Galenica is a diversified Group active throughout the healthcare market which, among other activities, develops, manufactures and markets pharmaceutical products, runs pharmacies, provides logistical and database services and sets up networks.

A large part of the Group’s income is generated by international operations. Galenica is listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange (SIX Swiss Exchange, GALN, security number 1,553,646).
