OC&C advises Next Capital on acquisition of rehabilitation retailerMonday, January 16, 2023 | News
We're pleased to congratulate James Murphy, David Browne and Niamh O’Reilly of Next Capital on their recent investment in Country Care Group, a supplier and retailer to the assisted living and aged care sectors. An integrated team from the Australian and UK practices of OC&C Strategy Consultants acted as the commercial due diligence provider in relation to the transaction, led by Jeremy Barker and Matthew Nicholas, while Mark Blackwell undertook a technology due diligence.
Country Care Group is a family run business which was founded in 1997. The business has a strong regional focus and is a supplier to government agencies such as the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and distributor of products ranging from mobility aids, specialist chairs and seats to lifters and slings. The business also works alongside occupational therapists and architects for home modifications services.
With their recent investment, Country Care Group plan to reach 75 stores from its 18 sites over the next three to five years. This will come from a mixture of buying stand-alone retailers, subcontractor supplier stores and new greenfield store sites.
OC&C is a leading strategy consultancy in the Home and Leisure sector working with both major global corporations and local champions. We have advised investors on some of the largest transactions worldwide in recent years.
