Gerald Edelman's Deal Advisory team advises on sale of ACHE

06 Oct 2021

Gerald Edelman is thrilled to announce that its Deal Advisory team has advised on the business sale of Academy of Community Health Experts (ACHE), a diversified community healthcare provider.

The founders of the business have nurtured an initial concept into an impressive operation which now has a strong presence in Leicestershire. The acquirer, pricing, and other deal terms have not been disclosed. 

Founded by GPs in 2017, ACHE provides specialised community healthcare services. Management utilises local and national clinical expertise to deliver a superior offering via experienced healthcare professionals. 

ACHE has been acquired by a private equity backed primary healthcare operator. The acquisition will strengthen the operator’s growing presence in the UK’s primary healthcare sector, while widening the scope of medical specialties they offer. The acquirer will bring invaluable strategic and operational guidance to ACHE, as well as access to capital to support the expansion of its operations and offering. 

Rishabh Prasad, Founder of ACHE, commented: 

“We are incredibly proud of the growth and scale we have achieved in the past 3 years. The acquirer has demonstrated a great understanding of the sector we operate in and of the values we have built the business on. Being part of the acquirer will provide ACHE with access to the breadth of operational, strategic, and financial support needed to scale the business. We are excited to join them on this journey.

It has been fantastic working with the team at Gerald Edelman. I’m thrilled that they have identified a most suitable acquirer and have delivered a great deal for all parties involved. We were impressed with their exceptional knowledge and experience of both the M&A process and UK healthcare market, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business owner seeking M&A and business advisory services.”

Priyesh Dhana, Senior Manager in Gerald Edelman’s Deal Advisory team, added: 

‘We are thrilled to have successfully advised on an exciting deal for Rishabh and the rest of the ACHE shareholders. Our extensive experience of managing mid-market deals, along with our access to a comprehensive pool of buyers, has been instrumental in assisting the team to achieve an excellent deal. We wish all parties the best for the future and have no doubt that ACHE will continue to go from strength to strength.”
