Deal significance: As per Allens' statement, Everlight provides teleradiology services for providers across the globe from its critical care hubs in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The group works with hospitals and clinics to provide urgent after-hours reporting as well as routine, overflow and backlog reporting, the firm said.
Meanwhile, Livingbridge is a global private equity sponsor.
The company's acquisition of Everlight marks its largest ever in the Australian market and complements its Better Medical and Habit Health platforms in Australia and New Zealand.
"The healthcare and technology sectors have consistently proven fertile ground for PE sponsors to play in. Everlight combines the two and supports the growing demand for remote or 'tele' services in healthcare. The business will be well served by Livingbridge's global healthcare experience," said Allens' Emin Altiparmak.
Allens' Mark Malinas added: "This year is further evidence of a mega year for sponsor-led transactions in the Australian market. Businesses such as Everlight appeal to private equity and their ability to structure transactions with a shared ownership model alongside management and healthcare professionals to drive outperformance."
