Bupa Acquisition Puts Advinia in Top 10 Private Care Providers. The deal, which closed in February, follows the completion of Bupa’s transfer of 110 care homes to HC-One in December.
The equity for the Advinia purchase, whose price has not been disclosed, was provided by Dr Sanjeev Kanoria, a liver surgeon and ex-McKinsey consultant from London, who co-founded Advinia with his wife Sangita Kanoria. With strong financial backing, the expansion will see Advinia’s quality of service applied across the new homes.
Debt was arranged by Credit Suisse Bank in London, and Austrian Anadi Bank in Austria, which is fully-owned by Dr Kanoria. Legal counsel was provided by Allen & Overy.
Dr Sanjeev Kanoria, Chairman, Advinia Health Care said: “We are interested in expansion for sure, but not for its own sake. Advinia Health Care is fundamentally about delivering a higher quality of service, as well as value for money. We want more families across the UK to benefit from our commitment to the individual needs of every resident. A well-run care home can make a difference to the lives of residents and loved ones alike. It has an important value in society.”
