Impact of COVID on M&A in the care home market



This report discusses the likely impact of COVID-19 on M&A in the care home market. It will be useful for those looking to buy or sell care home businesses in the current market. The key themes touched upon are as follows:


- A focus on purpose built stock as the pandemic has highlighted that many older properties are not fit for purpose in elderly care

- Sharpened focus on private pay and specialist care, as social care funding is continually squeezed due to the increased national debt burden driven by COVID support packages

- A number of willing vendors looking to exit and retire following a highly stressful period navigating through the pandemic

- The likely valuation gap as vendor value expectations remain unchanged from pre-pandemic levels, and how acquirers will look to bridge this
