21 November 2011

Cooper Parry Corporate Finance and law firm Browne Jacobson have advised the management team of Independent Community Care Management Limited ("ICCM") on the private equity investment in the company by ISIS Equity Partners ("ISIS")

Based in Kettering, ICCM supports adults and children with a range of complex conditions, including spinal cord injuries, acquired brain injuries and other degenerative disabilities such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and cerebral palsy, with a particular specialism in vented care. By building a nurse-led package to suit individual needs, ICCM gives clients the freedom to live independent lives in the community.

This investment will ensure that ICCM can continue to consolidate its excellent reputation in the East Midlands, whilst also building on existing relationships in other geographies.

Zerina Yerrell, Managing Director of ICCM said the partnership of ICCM and ISIS represented exciting times for the business.

She said: "ICCM has grown successfully throughout its history by being passionate about its clients and putting quality at the heart of everything. The investment from ISIS allows ICCM to continue to deliver exceptional levels of care and provides a strategic partner with proven healthcare credentials to assist ICCM through its next period of growth."

The business was founded by registered nurse Zerina Yerrell in 1997. ICCM currently works with 24 Primary Care Trusts throughout the UK, but is particularly strong in the East Midlands. The organisation has a team of over 300 nurses, carers and case managers, who are all employed by ICCM, to ensure ICCM delivers a quality assured, person-centred service.

David Browne and Rob Burden, of Cooper Parry Corporate Finance originated and led the transaction. Rob Burden said "We have worked closely with ICCM for a number of years and we are absolutely delighted to have completed this deal for management"

"ICCM is already a market leader in the provision of in home complex care and the partnership with ISIS will provide support and expertise to enable further growth"

Legal advice was provided by Nigel Blackwell, Paul Simpson and Christina Swales of the corporate team at Browne Jacobson.

Nigel Blackwell said: "The role of specialist independent healthcare providers has grown considerably over the last 10 years. With significant changes to the UK healthcare environment on the horizon and the prospect of greater outsourcing of services the future looks promising for companies such as ICCM. We are delighted that private equity investors such as ISIS are prepared to invest into this growing and resilient sector."
