Case study: Commercial due diligence on a nursery chain

Our client was evaluating a UK nursery chain to form the basis of a ‘buy and build’ international early-years strategy.

Our client

A private equity investor.

The context

Our client was evaluating a UK nursery chain to form the basis of a ‘buy and build’ international early-years strategy.

Our role

We conducted extensive due diligence on the target, market demand and competition. We analysed demand, supply and competitive position on a site-by-site basis using our proprietary methodology.

The outcome

The client acquired the nursery chain, using our analysis to validate their own financial modelling, to plan and support management’s agenda post-acquisition, and to lay the groundwork for their ongoing portfolio strategy.

What the client said:

ID: 020

“We highly appreciate Cairneagle’s deep knowledge of the childcare sector together with the team dedication and genuine interest in achieving the best for their client. They have definitely met and surpassed our expectations and we are confident that our collaboration will continue in the future.”
