FFP today announced a minority investment in Acteon alongside Dentressangle Mid & Large Cap for €15 million.

Acteon is a French Medtech company specialising in the design and manufacture of high-tech dental and medical devices. Recognized for its innovation capabilities, the quality of its products and the expertise of its management team, Acteon is ideally positioned in a growing market driven by long-term trends. The company also benefits from a diversified geographical exposure.

Dentressangle Mid & Large Cap acquired the company in October 2018 and has opened the capital to a few partners, all long-term investors. FFP will be represented on the company's supervisory board.

Commenting on this investment, Robert Peugeot, FFP’s chairman, said, "Acteon is very well positioned in the dental equipment market. Following our investments in ORPEA and with ArchiMed, we are increasing our exposure to the healthcare sector, where the prospects, driven by long-term trends, appear to be attractive. Finally, we are very pleased to partner with the Dentressangle family investment holding, with which we share values and a long-term investment strategy.
