McDermott Will & Emery has advised the management division of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ Management), pioneers in the field of reproductive medicine, in connection with the execution of its business combination with The Valencian Infertility Institute (IVI) of Spain to create a new company called IVI-RMA Global, SL (IVI-RMA Global).
IVI-RMA Global will be the largest global fertility network providing assisted reproduction and related services. IVI-RMA Global and its board of directors, which will be comprised of the founding partners of IVI and RMANJ, will oversee all international business units, including the newly-created IVI America. One of IVI America’s core goals will be to expand the combined company’s footprint in the United States and Canada.
IVI-RMA Global and its affiliated practices will have nearly 2,400 employees across 70 locations around the world, and will include a team of over 200 physicians, and over 300 scientists and researchers. The combination of these platforms will create a unified global entity providing evidence-based fertility solutions that offer patients the greatest chances for success in the shortest time possible.
Founded in 1999, RMANJ became one of the largest and most successful IVF programs in the US. In the last five years, RMANJ has grown nearly 70% in new patients. Last year alone, patients came to RMANJ from over 30 U.S. states and 40 countries.
RMANJ is represented by McDermott Will & Emery LLP (United States), Olleros Abogados (Spain), and Dresner Partners (United States).
IVI is represented by Garrigues Abogados (Spain) and Arcano Group (Spain) in connection with the transaction.
