*NEW RESEARCH* Clanwilliam Group: Ambitious Plans in Healthcare

Clanwilliam Group logoA short time ago TechMarketView caught up with Howard Beggs, CEO of Dublin-based Clanwilliam Group. After acquiring 14 healthcare businesses in the last four years the business shows no signs of slowing down (quite the opposite), so we wanted to learn more.

From Howard’s first step in healthcare technology with Medicom Medical Solutions in 1995, through the launch of Helix Health in 2007 and the acquisition by Eli Global and the creation of Clanwilliam Health in 2014, the business has seen a huge amount of change. Since being acquired by Eli it has grown rapidly through an acquisition strategy that mirrors the “buy-grow-and-hold” approach of its parent company.

As Clanwilliam’s M&A capability matured we saw six deals completed in 2017, including NHS clinical correspondence and dictation business Medisec Software (see Clanwilliam Group acquires another NHS technology provider). Further deals have been completed in 2018, including NHS predictive analytics provider Informatica Systems (see Clanwilliam Group acquires Informatica Systems).

Clanwilliam’s total investment in new businesses since it was acquired by Eli now totals c.€150m, but it’s not resting on its laurels, in fact we can expect to see it ramp up its acquisition ambitions.
