Lepu Medical

In 2007, Warburg Pincus invested in Lepu Medical (Lepu), a leading provider of interventional cardiology devices, drugs, and equipment including drug-eluting stents to treat heart diseases. Lepu leveraged Warburg Pincus’ expertise in sourcing and evaluating multiple acquisition targets, both in China and abroad. The Warburg Pincus team was instrumental in the restructuring of the company and its subsequent IPO. In 2009, Lepu became one of the first companies to list on ChiNext of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, the growth enterprise stock exchange in China. Additionally, Warburg Pincus worked closely with Lepu’s management team on improving operational efficiency, management capability, and investor relations. Warburg Pincus exited the investment in 2013.
