In addition the combination of the product and trading activities of M1 Aesthetics under the umbrella of HAEMATO AG, it is the long-term strategy of the M1 Kliniken Group to increase the vertical integration of its own activities. To this end, it is intended to establish a selection of high-quality treatment products (hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin) as a "M1 private label" in the medium term and thereby strengthen the earning power, especially in the entry-level price segment.

Dr. Walter von Horstig, Member of the Board of Directors of M1 Kliniken AG, comments on the transaction as follows: "The implementation of our strategy "Quality does not have to be expensive" repeatedly calls for the development of value creation potential. Our long-term private label strategy will be an important element in this respect in the future. Favourable prices mean a larger market with simultaneously rising margins from the various stages of the value chain. HAEMATO AG's established development platform is an ideal starting point for this and will help us to implement the strategy quickly and securely".
