Montagu agrees to sell Maincare 

Montagu, a leading European private equity firm, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to sell Maincare, a provider of software for French public hospitals and health authorities, to Docaposte, the digital arm of La Poste, the French postal service.

Maincare provides an end-to-end hospital information system offering in France, where it is a leader in electronic patient records as well as hospital administration, interoperability, and telemedicine solutions. Through its integrated software suite, it assists public hospitals, payers, and insurers to implement successful digital strategies for the benefit of patients.

Since Montagu acquired Maincare in 2018, it has worked with the business to respond to the rapidly changing needs of policymakers and hospitals, in particular in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Significant investments in R&D led to the development of new-generation electronic patient records as well as the modernisation of Maincare’s technology ensuring that products are interoperable, SaaS-ready, and at the forefront of innovation in terms of cyber-security.

Under Montagu’s ownership, Maincare’s historically acquired business lines were combined from an organisational and technology standpoint, introducing a shared vision and strategy to the business and driving efficiencies. Led by a strong and unified management team, the changes helped to establish a customer-centric culture which put the needs of medical personnel and patients at the centre of the organisation.

Montagu Partner Guillaume Jabalot said, “Maincare is a great example of Montagu’s strategy of partnering with leading companies offering critical products and services. We are proud of the success Maincare has achieved and we are certain that the company will continue to thrive under the ownership of Docaposte. We especially would like to thank the management team and all Maincare’s employees for their hard work and dedication and we wish them all the best on their future journey.”

François-Xavier Floren, CEO of Maincare, commented: „The partnership with Docaposte will allow us to address one of the major challenges of our market – the importance of offering customers long-term support with a trusted partner present in software, hosting and services. Over the last two years, with the support of Montagu, we successfully carried out a transformation plan aimed at improving one of the persistent challenges of the French hospital system by „Giving time back to the Caregivers“. The management team and all Maincare’s employees are confident that the partnership with Docaposte will bring further significant value to our clients and to the market.”

The transaction remains subject to the approval of the French competition authority.
