Physitrack will pay a total cash consideration of SEK 15.0 million upfront for the acquisition, and a further potential aggregate earn-out consideration of SEK 55.0 million over four years subject to stretching growth targets in alignment with Physitrack’s being achieved in that period.
Physitrack Plc (publ), a global leader in the global virtual care space, has today completed the acquisition of Sweden-based Fysiotest Europa AB, a Nordic leader in modern occupational health care, physical testing and performance coaching. The acquisition accelerates the enhancement of its offering and boosts revenue streams by leveraging Fysiotest’s proven formula at a global scale.
“We are delighted to welcome Fysiotest to the Physitrack group. Now we can further enhance our virtual-first care business line by boosting our expertise and technological edge for prevention and wellness. Fysiotest’s uniquely successful methodology for preventative care allows us to take a significant commercial leap forward with employers, insurers and public healthcare providers, who will benefit from improved employee health, staff retention, as well as reduced costly absences”, comments Henrik Molin, Physitrack CEO.
Fysiotest - a frontrunner in preventative modern health care
Fysiotest Europa AB focuses on preventative health care through optimised physical testing, training, dietary advice and coaching of workforces, at both an individual and organisational level. The company provides sports science-based experiences with personalised analysis through extensive health evaluations and blood testing, which enables coaching of the individual’s needs while setting actionable goals.
“Following this deal we will have the best technology, methodology and in-house team to ensure we can optimise our offering for Physitrack’s customers across the globe,” continues Henrik Molin.
Fysiotest’s founder, Sami Seppänen,is one of Sweden’s most reputable elite athlete coaches, notably as the head coach of the Swedish national tennis team. Seppänen developed the company’s evidence-based analysis and coaching methodology over decades of working with athletes to optimise their health and performance.
Fysiotest’s revenue streams are highly repeating with a sticky customer-base. There is also scope to complement Fysiotest’s business model with a subscription model that will provide SaaS-like revenue streams, in line with how Physitrack envisions it will operate across all business lines in the near-term.
“We are excited to join Physitrack and its group companies to be a part of the new and innovative dimension of modern health care. With Physitrack’s unrivalled technology in combination with our expertise and unique approach to prevention, we will have the best methodology and team to optimise our offering in our existing markets while also setting the scene for delivering our unique customer experience across the globe,” comments Sami Seppänen, Fysiotest founder and CEO.
Strengthening Nordic footprint and enhancing offering The acquisition of Fysiotest is a financially accretive deal that allows Physitrack to enhance its care offering to include testing, assessments, analysis and coaching. It also allows Physitrack to leverage off the proven success of Fysiotest’s Nordic offering on a global scale and expand its care offering in this very interesting region.
Physitrack will integrate the key methodology and processes from Fysiotest into its upcoming subscription-based care offering, which aims to deliver a technology-centric holistic wellness and care service to SMEs, enterprises and private healthcare insurers. This new offering will provide an additional route for Physitrack to monetise the potential of enhanced features brought by the deal. It also expects to leverage off the talent and experience of the management team, including Sami Seppänen and his team of expert occupational and physical therapists, to enhance Physitrack’s patient engagement technology.
“Addressing prevailing gaps in virtual care and remote patient engagement opens up new avenues for growth and, because we are wrapping everything up into a holistic, turnkey, affordable and convenient digital SaaS solution, we expect to significantly expand our addressable market.” adds Henrik Molin, Physitrack CEO.
Financials and Purchase price
In the twelve months ending December 31, 2021, Fysiotest is expected to record revenues of SEK 12.0 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of SEK 1.8 million or an EBITDA margin of 15 percent.
