Corporate Finance Partners Group expands
Life sciences advisory group BioConnect AG becomes Corporate Finance Partners CFP BioConnect AG

Frankfurt am Main, 14th August 2008: BioConnect AG, the Corporate Finance / M&A advisory group specialised on the Life Sciences Industry, announced that it will operate with immediate effect as Corporate Finance Partners CFP BioConnect AG. With this partnership, BioConnect will assume an even closer role within the Corporate Finance Partners Group ('CFP '). The aim of the integration into the international network of the CFP group is to work together more closely in the areas of business origination, PR, marketing, research, and transaction execution. The stronger ties will help both entities to capitalize on sector and knowledge related synergies on an international level.

BioConnect has specialized in financing and M&A advisory services for Life Sciences and MedTech companies since 1999. Their founder, shareholder and CEO, Klaus Nestler, has over 20 years experience in M&A and financing, including 10 years as an investment banker with Warburg Dillon Read. The investment bank is now part of UBS. Nestler and his team have executed more than 20 growth financing rounds and have successfully completed numerous M&A mandates.

Klaus Nestler explains the motives for this step: 'Corporate Finance Partners ('CFP') has been a shareholder in BioConnect for a few years. The existing close relationship is based on trust and is the best platform to further enhance our cooperation with all parts of the CFP group. Thus, we supplement our Life Sciences and MedTech focus and our successful positioning in this sector to see the benefits of the alliance with a larger M&A advisory group. The international presence of CFP, with its own office in the U.S., will position us favorably to execute transatlantic transactions.'

Andreas Thümmler, founder and owner of Corporate Finance Partners CFP Beratungs GmbH, says: 'Klaus Nestler, Richard Chambers, and the entire team of BioConnect are very successful and are absolute experts in the fields of Life Sciences and MedTech. Combined with the track record and international network of Corporate Finance Partners, we will accelerate growth and success of the corporation through this alliance.'

The Corporate Finance Partners group now consists of eight managing directors / partners, supported by approximately 30 professionals.
