In their latest major tech-enabled health services deal, our CP Deals team provided corporate finance advice to the Antser Group as it underwent a management buyout, backed by YFM Equity Partners (YFM).

Midlands-based Antser Group is a leading, tech-driven provider of assessments and social care training.

It comprises of Carter Brown, a Mansfield-based provider of independent psychological, psychiatric and social work assessments for child-related safeguarding, and Antser Learning, a Birmingham-based, VR-powered training tool for front-line children’s care practitioners.

Antser Group has a combined revenue of £10m, and the buyout transaction will allow them to build on past successes and strengthen their mission to provide better outcomes for children, young people, families, vulnerable adults and communities.

Antser CEO, Richard Dooner said:

“Cooper Parry helped us with the successful sale of Tri-x last year, so we were keen to work with them again on the buyout of the Antser Group. It certainly helped that they already had a good understanding of our business, the sector and our working style.

The transaction took a big effort from all involved, Andy, Ollie & their team persevered to help get the deal over the line successfully. We all at Antser are now very excited for what lies ahead in this new chapter with YFM.”

Andy Parker, Corporate Finance Partner, CP Deals, added:

“The CP Deals team continue to show their market knowledge and deal-making skills in the health and social care and technology sectors. We’ve had a strong relationship with the Antser team for some time now, so it’s great to have provided support on this landmark transaction and we wish them every success for the future.”
