Fresenius SE Hires Deutsche Bank for Rhoen Klinikum Takeover Bid

Fresenius SE hired Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) for advice on the 3.1 billion euro ($4.1 billion) offer to buy Rhoen Klinikum AG (RHK), said Matthias Link, a spokesman for Fresenius, in an e-mail.

Fresenius announced the bid on April 26. Link and Joachim Weith, the company’s senior vice president for corporate communications, said then that the Bad Homburg, Germany-based company didn’t use an investment bank. Rhoen Klinikum is being advised by Morgan Stanley. (MS)
