Microbais is one of the market leaders in ambulatory and pharmacy information

million Euro. 

Microbais employs around 90 employees and is headquartered in Amsterdam. Around

In this transaction CompuGroup Medical also acquires a 51% majority holding in

patients and pharmacies.

Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG, underlined the relevance of this
acquisition: "After the successful acquisition of Ascon Euroned, today CGM
Netherlands, the purchase of Microbais is a crucial step towards extending the
market position in the Dutch pharmacy software sector. At the same time we
strengthen our coverage in the field of ambulatory information systems. The
highly positive feedback from shareholders and employees of Microbais regarding
this transaction encourages us in using this excellent start into the year 2012
