“We are pleased that our investment in Dobrobut will enable Ukraine’s market leader to further strengthen the healthcare services they offer to the community and expand their network of clinics”, says Lenna Koszarny, Horizon Capital’s Founding Partner and CEO. “Horizon Capital has been watching Dobrobut for many years and is delighted that our efforts this past year have resulted in an investment that we believe will be truly transformative and beneficial to Ukrainian citizens and society. Horizon Capital’s entry into this strategic sector, together with the backing of our global institutional investors, will play a significant role in the development of healthcare in Ukraine, as it brings capital, transparency, world-class equipment and best practices to this industry.”
Oleg Kalashnikov, CEO of Dobrobut, says: “Attracting Horizon Capital as an investor is an important milestone in our growth strategy – it is not about selling part of the business, this deal is about increasing capital and supporting growth. For many years, we have been building the business of Dobrobut in a transparent way. We adhere to world-class standards for doing business, both in medicine and in management. We have ambitious plans to further develop the Company, including opening new clinics, expanding the scope of medical services offered and mastering new skills. Our plans require investment and expertise. Horizon Capital’s capital, knowledge and experience are pivotal in supporting our ambitious strategic plans. We expect this partnership to have a significant positive impact on our network – in the nearest future we will open another medical facility in Kyiv, 10,000 sqm, which will offer top-notch surgery, oncology and cardiology services.”
