Vivimed Labs Spain S.L, the parent of UQUIFA S.A, has signed definitive agreements to facilitate the acquisition of SONEAS, a Budapest (Hungary) headquartered CDMO company, focussed on the Innovator Pharmaceutical and Fine Chemical sectors. The business has been acquired from Lochlomond and Euroventures which are both based out of Hungary. SONEAS has for the year 2017, reported revenues of €12.2mn.
