Hazlewoods Corporate Finance, a leading adviser in the Health and Care sector with a significant track record on acquisitions, disposals and raising finance, has recently advised on the acquisition by Voyage Care Limited of Independent Living Group (ILG), a provider of high quality support and care for people with complex needs through 28 homes across Kent, Sussex and Hampshire. The Hazlewoods team was led by David Main.
Voyage Care has been a leading provider of support for people with learning disabilities, autism, head and spinal injuries and other complex disabilities for the last 20 years across the UK.
Hazlewoods was instructed by Voyage Care and worked closely alongside Business Development Director, Peter Battle, throughout the deal. Peter commented: “The Hazlewoods team did a great job and were constantly on hand with useful challenge, insight and analysis. I look forward to working with them again in the future”.
David Main of Hazlewoods Corporate Finance said, “We really enjoyed working alongside Voyage Care on this transaction, providing advice on complex issues throughout the acquisition process, and very much hope to work with Voyage Care again in the future”.
The transaction was funded with existing cash, plus an injection of equity from Voyage’s majority shareholders, HgCapital and SL Capital Partners.
