Avista Capital Partners Appoints Hakan Bjorklund as Healthcare Operating Executive
Date:10/6/2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Avista Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm, today announced that it has hired Hakan Bjorklund, the departing Chief Executive Officer of Nycomed, as Healthcare Operating Executive.  Mr. Bjorklund worked closely with Avista on the development of Nycomed during Avista's ownership of the company, which was recently sold to Takeda Pharmaceuticals Company Limited for Euro 9.6 billion.

Under Mr. Bjorklund's leadership, Nycomed was transformed from a predominantly Scandinavian business into a global pharmaceutical company with leading market positions in Europe, Russia/CIS, Brazil and Latin America.  In 2006, Mr. Bjorklund led the integration of Altana Pharmaceutical, a German-based company that Nycomed purchased for Euro 4.2 billion. He was also instrumental in growing Nycomed in emerging markets, most recently through the acquisition of Guangdong Techpool Bio-Pharma Co., Ltd, a fast growing Chinese bio-pharmaceutical company, in 2010.    

Thompson Dean, Co-Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Avista, said, "We are delighted to welcome Hakan to Avista.  One of the top pharmaceutical executives in Europe, he possesses a deep understanding of the global healthcare market.  Having worked closely with him for many years, I know that Hakan will bring extensive strategic, operational and investment expertise to Avista as well as strong relationships throughout the global healthcare sector."    

Newton Aguiar, the partner in charge of Avista's European operations, added, "We are looking forward to working with Hakan on healthcare investments both in Europe and throughout the world.  Hakan built Nycomed into one of the fastest growing global pharmaceutical companies, in part, by expanding its presence in key emerging markets, particularly in Russia/CIS and Latin America.  His experience will be invaluable to the healthcare management teams in Avi
