CMS advises Vista Augenpraxis & Kliniken on AVANTI’s acquisition

Vista Klinik Holding has acquired AVANTI, Centro Ticinese di chirurgia ambulatoriale, on 15 July 2022. This acquisition represented the first presence of the company in the canton of Ticino. Founded in 2007, AVANTI has three operating rooms with a total area of 605 square metres, as well as a convalescence area and an ophthalmology practice specialising in retinal treatments. The company, who performs about 5,000 ophthalmological operations annually, will continue working with the same staff as always.

Regarding the buyer, Vista Augenpraxen & Kliniken was founded over 30 years ago and consists of a network of experienced ophthalmologists and specialists with a focus on northwestern Switzerland and the Zurich area. With its new acquisitions, the number of locations will be further increased.

Furthermore, CMS has advised the buyer on two other transactions in the middle of this year: The purchase of all shares in an eye centre with two associated practices in the cantons of Aargau and Zurich was successfully completed, and another eye practice in the canton of Grisons was acquired as part of an asset deal.
