Carasent ASA ("Carasent" or the "Company") has acquired the Swedish company HPI
Health Profile Institute AB ("HPI"), a leading provider of software solutions
for occupational healthcare in Sweden.
Founded in Sweden in 1976, HPI provides software as a service solutions for
digitalization of workflows for health profile services and medical check-ups
and health assessments in working life. A vast majority of occupational
healthcare providers in the Swedish market are on HPI's customer list.
"We are very pleased to have completed this transaction. HPI has a strong
reputation within the occupational care, a segment of great growth potential for
Carasent moving foward. We are impressed by what the team at HPI has delivered
so far and through previous partnership and integrations between HPI and Webdoc
we have already seen great potential for synergies that we plan to develop
further through this acquisition.", says Dennis Höjer, CEO of Carasent.
HPI has an attractive customer base of approximately 200 clients in Sweden and
Norway with revenues of SEK 15.1m LTM September 2022 growing from SEK 10.6
million LTM September 2021. From the beginning of 2021, HPI strongly invested in
the organisation and competence to enable further growth. Hence, HPI's EBITDA
has been neutral since 2021. Through leveraging Carasent and HPI's combined
offering for the occupational healthcare, the Company aims to accelerate this
growth going forward.
The transaction values HPI at an enterprise value of SEK 35 million including a
contingent earn-out of up to SEK 13 million, based on the achievement of certain
performance metrics in 2023. The initial purchase price is based on an upfront
enterprise value of SEK 22 million less HPI's consolidated net debt position of
SEK 11 million (the "Purchase Price").
The transaction purchase price will be settled as follows:
- SEK 8.9 million of the Purchase Price in cash upon closing.
- SEK 2.2 million will be reinvested in Carasent amounting to 122,375
consideration shares (corresponding to 20% of the Purchase Price), valued at a
price of NOK 17.16 per share, corresponding to the 10-day volume weighted
average price ("VWAP") on the 17th of October 2022 (the "Reinvestment").
