We are delighted to have advised specialist healthcare communications agency OneHealth Communications on their acquisition by M3Medical Holdings.
Founded in 2009 and based in London, ONEHealth Communications is a specialist data-driven healthcare communications agency delivering media and content services to one of the largest UK healthcare professional (HCPs) communities (150k+) via GDPR compliant marketing channels.
Through highly specific targeting, partners can deliver the right message to the right person at the right time across primary care, secondary care and commissioning audiences. To complement this significant reach, ONEHealth Communications also has extensive experience with healthcare media planning as well as creating client content to drive engagement, allowing the agency to provide a full range of services for its clients.
Led by MD Veronique Cotrel, Dave Hoey, Julie Bartlett and Andrew Davis, ONEHealth will continue to operate as an independent brand within the M3 Group.
About M3 Inc.
Headquartered in Tokyo and with offices across China, the US, UK, Korea and India, M3 delivers healthcare related information to over 6 million physician members globally across its media channel platforms, including Doctors.net in the UK. Combining with ONEHealth’s reach across nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare stakeholders is highly complementary and will allow M3 to take advantage of ONEHealth’s healthcare content generation and media planning capabilities, providing end-to-end solutions to M3’s clients.
Dave Sewards, Chairman, ONEHealth commented:
“Green Square ran a tightly managed and very efficient process to find us the perfect acquirer for our business. They provided wide-reaching, detailed research on a significant number of potential international buyers – both PE backed and publicly listed – before narrowing the list to a handful which represented best fit and value. They generated a lot of interest and we received a number of offers before finally settling on M3, where we felt the future of ONEHealth and the team would be best served. I’d like to thank Green Square for not only being an excellent partner to us, but also being constantly by our side throughout”
Tony Walford, Partner, Green Square commented:
“It was a pleasure to work with Dave, Veronique and the team on this transaction. Whilst there was no shortage of acquirers, there was a clear and obvious fit with M3 given the data-driven nature of both parties’ work and how well they complement each other. I’m sure this will be a resounding success for both sides and wish them the very best for the future”
