Perwyn, a pan-European growth oriented private equity investor, has just announced that it has agreed to acquire European Sperm Bank (ESB) from Axcel in a transaction, which is expected to close in Q3 2022.

ESB is one of the leading sperm banks in the world, providing women and couples in more than 90 countries donor sperm of the highest quality based on a rigorous screening process. Since its inception in 2004, ESB has helped woman and couples across the world make their dream of a family come true.

Perwyn will invest behind the ESB management team and employees to further expand ESB’s donor bank, its geographic coverage and its broader range of fertility services as well as extending ESB’s industry-leading quality, compliance and technology. Because of its unique funding model, the investment team at Perwyn will focus 100 percent of its time and energy on helping ESB achieve its ambitious international growth plans. 

Bech-Bruun congratulates all parties with signing of the transaction. 

Bech-Bruun’s team was headed by Sven Frode Frølund, Thomas Bøgedal Kristiansen and Morten Møller Bertelsen.
