The aged care sector in Australia is a $20 billion industry with an annual growth rate of 5.1 percent, much above that of the broader economy. Key drivers of growth in this sector include government assistance, the increase in Australia’s aging population and the need for age-appropriate accommodation services
Merger, acquisition, and consolidation have increasingly occurred in the aged care sector over the past 5 years. Many operators have recognised the benefits of economies of scale that are available through acquisition, whilst other operators have exited the industry due to lack of capital or scale.
There are a number of factors that have a direct impact on the valuation of businesses in the aged care sector, such as:
- The potential for scalability;
- The ability to take advantage of government subsidies and grants;
- The implementation of quality systems, procedures, and protocols;
- The ownership of more than one facility and optimal capacity utilisation, and
- The high demand for services in a geographical area.
