Ogier has acted for Four Seasons Health Care on its acquisition by leading private equity firm Terra Firma. The company is being acquired for a total consideration of up to £825m.

Four Seasons is the largest independent provider in a £15 billion market in the UK. The Company operates 445 care homes, with 22,364 beds, and 61 specialist care centres, with 1,601 beds. During a period of financial uncertainty, Four Seasons has achieved a turnaround in quality of care and business performance, and is trading profitably.

Ogier provides legal, professional director and fiduciary services to the group.

Simon Mackenzie, Ogier Group partner commented:

“We are delighted to have acted for Four Seasons Health Care in this transaction. Going forward the group will have significantly reduced debt and a secure and sustainable capital structure, which is great news for residents and employees alike.”
