CLB Coopers supports management buy-out team

The management team at Amberleigh Care Limited, one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist therapeutic care and education services, has undertaken a management buy-out, with the support of our Corporate Finance and Tax teams.

Amberleigh Care, which has residential centres located in Welshpool and Telford, is one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist therapeutic care and education services for young males between the ages of 11 and 18 years old.

Its centres, which offer a safe and homely environment for young males who have exhibited inappropriate or harmful sexual behaviours, use programmes based around care, education and therapy, delivered by a team of highly specialist staff, to support the growth and achievement of each individual and with a focus on achieving their full potential.

Amberleigh Care is a member of The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities and the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ quality improvement network for therapeutic communities. It is a preferred provider across Wales and it is on several regional frameworks across England.

Kevin Gallagher, Managing Director of Amberleigh Care and who led the management buy-out team with Finance Director, Stuart Lawless, commented, “We are very excited to have this opportunity to take the service forwards and to build on the very solid foundations which have evolved over the twelve years of operation.

In the last two years, we have built the management team and operating systems to position the service as a centre of excellence in this highly specialist area of practice”.

Andrew Feeke and Luke Brown from our Corporate Finance team and Colin Abrahams & Sophie Huddleston from our Tax team acted for the management buy-out team.

Andrew commented, “We have worked with Amberleigh Care for a number of years. This in-depth knowledge of the business, as well as the ambitions of the management team, have allowed us to work with them to structure the transaction and shape the business for future opportunities and growth”.

Mark Winthorpe and Katie Ward of Pannone Corporate provided legal advice to the management team. Funding was provided by James Oliver at Yorkshire Bank.

David Mkhitarian of Hill Dickinson provided legal advice to the vendors.
