CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PBM Capital Group has completed the sale of a majority interest in Breas Medical Group (“Breas”) to Fosun Pharma (“Fosun”), a leading healthcare company in China. Fosun is publicly listed on the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock exchanges. PBM Capital will remain a partner with Fosun and both parties will work together with management to expand Breas.

“Fosun adds scale and will further strengthen Breas’ presence in Asia, a high growth market,” says Damian deGoa, PBM Capital Managing Director. “With its 25-year history in Europe, rapid growth in the United States, and future expansion in China, Breas will have a strong presence in all major global markets. The prevalence of respiratory conditions like COPD and sleep apnea, the transition of healthcare from the hospital to the home, business development opportunities, and the upcoming launch of Breas’ new ventilation and CPAP products will accelerate future growth.”
