Bupa buys Bristol based dental group Oasis for £835m | Business Leader

Bupa buys Bristol based dental group Oasis for £835m | Business Leader | Private healthcare | Scoop.it
Share this on Social MediaFast-growing Bristol-based dental group Oasis has been bought by private healthcare giant Bupa for £835m. The firm, consistently named in lists of the UK’s super-growth firms, was half owned by its management and half by private equity firm Bridgepoint. Bupa is understood to have been in competition with a number of other private equity buyers to acquire Oasis. The firm, founded in 1996, has expanded to become the UK’s number one provider of private dentistry. It now runs 380 dental practices across the UK with more than 1,800 dentists, serving 2m people across both the public and private sectors. In the year this March it clocked up sales of £275m on which it made a profit of £13m. Oasis CEO Justin Ash, comments: “Our growth is accelerating and enthusiasm is building amongst dentists and customers. “We now believe that as part of the Bupa family that we can really develop the business further and that we can continue to transform the UK dentistry market. “Above all, the success of Oasis is built on the talent and commitment of our clinicians and staff and the loyalty of our customers. We will continue to focus on their need every day.” Bridgepoint bought the firm for £185m in April 2013 from buy-out firm Duke Street, which six years earlier had acquired it for £77m. At the time Bridgepoint said it would provide funding of £60m to help the business expand its presence in the UK dental market. Mr Ash joined Oasis in 2008 and is widely credited with building it up to become the UK’s first national dentistry brand. Prior to joining Oasis he was managing director of LloydsPharmacy and has held senior positions in the service and retail sector including general manager of KFC in the UK and Ireland, and commercial director of Bristol-based Allied Domecq Spirits and Wines, Europe.
