Regis Healthcare Limited (ASX: REG) (Regis) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding agreement to acquire CPSM Pty Ltd, a privately-owned residential aged care provider for net consideration of $74.2 million[1]. As part of the transaction, the RAD liability assumed at completion is expected to be approximately $151 million.

CPSM was founded in 2010 and owns five freehold Queensland-based premium residential aged care facilities in high demand metropolitan locations with 644 operational beds. Four of the homes are located in Brisbane and one on the Gold Coast with more than 80% of the beds built or refurbished since 2018. The business has a strong reputation as a high quality residential aged care provider with an excellent accreditation history and financial performance. CPSM generated FY23 operating revenue and underlying EBITDA of $67 million and $13 million[2] respectively. The five homes are currently operating at high occupancy, with an average of 96% in Q1 FY24.

The consideration represents a multiple of 5.7x FY23 underlying EBITDA or approximately $115,000 per bed. The acquisition will be funded by existing debt facilities.

Regis’ CEO Dr Linda Mellors said, “I am pleased to announce the acquisition of CPSM, a highly regarded residential aged care provider in Queensland. This transaction is consistent with our strategy to broaden our residential aged care footprint through the acquisition of premium homes. CPSM shares many common values with Regis and I commend the founders for the high-quality business they have built. I look forward to welcoming CPSM’s residents, families, employees and communities to Regis and ensuring a seamless transition of services.”

Key benefits of the acquisition include:

  • Addition of premium portfolio in high demand metropolitan locations;
  • Increases Regis’ aged care portfolio to 68 homes (100% freehold) or 7,604 beds;
  • Strong accreditation history across each of the homes with average portfolio star rating of 4+ for compliance and quality measures;
  • A complementary business with potential combination opportunities including procurement savings; and
  • Expected to be EPS accretive in FY24 with further growth expected in future years.

The transaction, which is subject to customary conditions, is expected to complete on 1 December 2023.
