Acquisitions and Disposals

During the last two years, Migros Group has acquired and sold various companies.

Transactions carried out in the 2018 financial year included the following:

Inclusion of PHZ Permanence Hauptbahnhof Zürich AG

The major practice PHZ Permanence Hauptbahnhof Zürich AG, which had already been acquired on 9 November 2017, was only included for the first time in the scope of consolidation of Migros Group on 1 January 2018 due to a lack of documents relating to the financial statements as at the end of 2017, and was subsequently merged with Medbase AG.

Majority shareholding in Groupe Médical Synergie SA

Medbase AG acquired a majority shareholding of 60.8% in Groupe Médical Synergie SA in mid-July 2018 (inclusion on 1 January 2018) and thus has its first medical centre specialising in the human musculoskeletal system (sports medicine, orthopaedics, traumatology and rheumato­logy) in western Switzerland.

With its "Dr. G" brand, Gowoonsesang specialises in dermocosmetics and fits perfectly with the Mibelle Group's international expansion strategy.
