CAPTURADO POR Ricardo Vea (CEO en SMOWL, Profesor en Deusto Business School)

RESUMEN:  Attendo is the largest private provider of services and products for older or disabled people in the Nordic region. It comprises three businesses: nursing home and domiciliary care services for older or disabled people, care alarm and communication systems, and alarm handling/response services.

PORQUE LA HE SELECCIONADO: actualmente es uno de los servicios que están evolucionando más rápido por la necesidades que se están creando, cara a servicios domiciliarios, más la tecnología que se va a necesitar utilizar. El incremento de la vida media nos va a llevar a utilizar servicios de este tipo.

Bridgepoint was attracted to the business and the sector for a number of reasons: its market leading position, impressive management team, high standards in quality of care, strong and stable market growth rates, favourable demographics as well as the significant opportunities to expand its care business domestically and internationally and to grow its systems and alarm handling business. Under Bridgepoint ownership, the business made six acquisitions to consolidate its Nordic market leadership.

In 2006 the business was acquired by IndustriKapital for an undisclosed sum wthBridgepoint achieving a 4.4x multiple on the original investment.

It offers a complete range of care services such as group/assisted living, daily activities, diagnostics, schools and leisure activities through 70 facilties across the country.

PORQUE LA HE SELECCIONADO: En guipuzcoaespecificamente somos lideres en todo el ámbito de minusvalias, incluido en el sector de trabajo ocupacional. Probablemente el Grupo Gureak es la empresa con mayor número de empleados hoy en Guipuzcoa. En mi opinión no estamamos aprovechándonos de esa oportunidad competitiva. En el sector de Autismo tenemos a Gautena, con desarrollos innovadores en el tratamiento de los autistas.

Bridgepoint Development Capital was attracted by the opportunity to acquire the No 1 operator in the highly fragmented autism care sector, recognising both the highly stable nature of the business as much as the strong growth potential to undertake a selective ‘buy and build’ programme.

At completion, Bridgepoint combined Tunstall with the telecare division of Attendo Group, the Nordic market leader in the operation of elderly care homes and services that it had acquired in February 2005.  Bridgepoint, already familiar with the sector through its investment in Attendo, was attracted by Tunstall’s strong revenue and profit growth track record, favourable long-term demographics across Europe and an impressive management team capable of exploiting and developing growth markets.

In March 2008 Tunstall was acquired by Charterhouse in a transaction totalling €667 million. Bridgepoint subsequently reinvested part of its proceeds to take an 18% stake in the business.
