LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), May 13 (SeeNews) – Slovenian pharmaceutical products wholesaler Salus [LJE:SALR] said on Wednesday it has acquired 10% of local IT startup Medifit.

The acquisition, along with the agreed additional increase of the stake, is in line with the company's 2018-2022 development strategy and will not have a significant impact on the group's operations, Salus said in a statement with the Ljubljana bourse.

Ljubljana-based Salus is one of Slovenia's leading wholesalers of pharmaceutical and medical products.
