Humana AB has entered an agreement to acquire all shares in Matiimi Oy, based in the Pirkanmaa region in Finland. The transfer will take place immediately and the operations of Matiimi will be included in Arjessa Oy, Humana’s Finnish subsidiary.

Matiimi offers therapeutic and rehabilitative services in three specialised treatment units for children and young people requiring specialised psychosocial care. The company also offers individualised outpatient care and family counselling services.

Revenues in Matiimi amounted to SEK 23 million in the fiscal year 2017/2018 and the company has approximately 30 employees.

“The acquisition strengthens Humana’s position as a leading national service provider and expert within individual and family care in Finland. Matiimi is a well-established and well-reputed service provider and we look forward to further developing operations together with management and staff”, said Rasmus Nerman, President and CEO of Humana.

“We are impressed with the work Matiimi has done over the last 16 years since the founding of the company and are convinced that Matiimi's high-quality, customer-oriented operations, and with its competent, committed staff, will become a natural and important new member of our Humana family”, said Pasi Kohtala, Managing Director of Arjessa and director of Humana’s operations in Finland.

“We are satisfied that, as a result of this arrangement, we will be able to continue the valuable work of Matiimi Oy. The set of values we share with Humana lays a firm foundation for long-term and high-quality services, and we have a shared vision of developing the activities of the Kissankello, Kissanminttu and Kissankulma units into the future”, said Tiina Kaapu, founder and CEO of Matiimi.
