Deal Wrap: Brookfield acquisition of Healthscope

KWM advised Brookfield Business Partners on its proposal to acquire Healthscope, Australia’s second-largest private hospital operator, in a transaction that implies an enterprise value of $5.7 billion.

A large, multi-disciplinary KWM team was engaged on the deal, including members of the firm’s M&A, real estate and banking and finance practices.

The complicated transaction involves a simultaneous scheme of arrangement and takeover and contemplates a mixture of bank funding and funding from the disposal of part of Healthscope’s property portfolio.

We discussed the innovative aspects of the deal with partners David Eliakim and Yuen-Yee Cho.
