The cash consideration for the entire company’s issued and to be issued shares represents a premium of approximately 28% to the CareTech closing share price on 4 March 2022, the last business day before the offer period commenced.

“On behalf of the CareTech Independent Board, we are pleased to have reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer by Bidco,” said CareTech non-executive director Jamie Cumming.

“We believe that this is in the best interests of our investors and other stakeholders, with the potential to deliver a number of strategic opportunities for the business through private ownership by Bidco.”

“As a consequence of the offer, CareTech’s founders will remain the controlling shareholders of the business. We believe this will allow the existing care-focused culture of the organisation to continue and enable CareTech to continue to deliver high standards of care to its service users.”
