Alliance PT Enters Into Definitive Agreement To Acquire 100% Of Agility Health’s U.S. Operations

By | Press Releases

Acquisition Would Allow Alliance PT to Expand National Footprint and Significantly Enhance Back-Office Capabilities

New York – February 6, 2018 – Alliance Physical Therapy Management, LLC (“Alliance PT”), an affiliate of GPB Capital and Alliance Physical Therapy Partners, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the U.S. operations of Agility Health, Inc. (TSXV: AHI) (“Agility Health”). The transaction, which is expected to close in February 2018 and is subject to customary closing conditions and certain regulatory approvals, would add, among other things, more freestanding outpatient physical therapy clinics, a contracted therapy business, and proprietary clinic management software (“AgileRPM”), to Alliance PT’s portfolio.

The agreement stipulates that Alliance PT will acquire 100% of the membership interests in Agility Health, LLC, the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based U.S. operations of Agility Health, for a total transaction value of $45 million. Agility Health’s U.S. division operates over 50 outpatient or on-site physical therapy clinics, and also provides contract rehabilitation services to over 90 hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation units, long-term care facilities, and industrial worksites across 21 states. Agility Health is one of the few healthcare operators in the country providing the most key services of the post-acute continuum of care.

“We are glad to have the opportunity to partner with Agility Health’s exceptional clinicians to provide vital physical therapy and rehabilitation services in many communities around the country,” said Mark Andrzejewski, CEO of Alliance Physical Therapy Partners. “AgileRPM, the electronic health records software at the core of the Agility Health operations, would help us efficiently treat and process more patients across all of our locations without sacrificing our commitment to high-quality patient care.”

Following the acquisition, Alliance PT would provide rehabilitation services to over 165 physical therapy locations in 25 states. In addition, Alliance PT would be able to leverage Agility Health’s corporate infrastructure to provide a suite of support services to its national footprint of clinics, including and without limitation billing, revenue cycle management, payroll, compliance, recruiting, and marketing.

“At a time when the demand for outpatient rehabilitation in this country is steadily growing, the expansive suite of resources and support we offer through Alliance PT would empower the clinics under Agility Health’s U.S. umbrella to streamline and strengthen their businesses,” said Dotty Bollinger, Managing Partner with GPB Capital responsible for the firm’s Healthcare Investments. “We will continue to seek operating partners with a solid track record of delivering high-value physical therapy and preventative care treatments.”

“The addition of Agility Health’s U.S. platform would give Alliance PT a strong foothold in the Midwest, which, coupled with flexible capital from GPB Capital and an integrated corporate infrastructure, would allow Alliance PT’s management to scale both organically and through acquisitions,” said Shaun Khubchandani, Vice President with GPB Capital focusing on the firm’s Healthcare Investments.

Livingstone Partners served as financial advisor to Agility Health. Arent Fox LLP served as legal advisor to Alliance PT and GPB Capital.

GPB Capital Affiliate Completes Seventh Acquisition, Purchasing Franklin Rehabilitation in Wisconsin

New York – January 26, 2018 – Alliance Physical Therapy Partners (“Alliance PT”), an affiliate of GPB Capital, has acquired a majority ownership stake in Franklin Rehabilitation (“Franklin Rehab”) which provides specialized rehabilitation services at two physical therapy clinics in the Milwaukee suburb of Franklin, Wisconsin. Terms of the deal, which closed on November 30, 2017, and constitutes Alliance PT’s seventh acquisition, were not disclosed.

“Franklin Rehab’s physical therapists are experienced specialists who are uniquely qualified to treat patients with musculoskeletal and neurological conditions—making Franklin Rehab a vital healthcare provider in its surrounding community,” said Mark Andrzejewski, CEO of Alliance Physical Therapy Partners. “The financial, administrative, and operational support we will provide is intended to position our new partners at Franklin Rehab to continue to deliver an optimal standard of care that isn’t always available in larger institutional settings, while also treating more patients.”

Franklin Rehab offers specialized rehabilitation services to patients suffering from a variety of maladies related to the musculoskeletal and neurological systems, including back and neck conditions, sports and work-related injuries, neurological disorders, and general orthopedic problems. The company’s physical therapists possess an average of 10 years of experience and undergo ongoing education. To help patients make well-informed decisions when choosing a provider of physical therapy, Franklin Rehab provides free injury screenings and consultations, as well as complimentary Specialty Treatment Program Guides containing questions patients should ask any therapist in order to ensure the therapist has the necessary experience and training for their specific condition.

Alliance PT works closely with independent physical therapy practices to help them implement best practices for generating scalable growth that benefits more patients. The Alliance PT approach involves streamlining managed payroll, workers’ compensation, recruitment, and other administrative processes in order to give practice managers more time to spend on patient care and practice growth. Alliance PT’s team members have a broad range of experiences building and running physical therapy practices, and can provide guidance on many areas of practice management, including acquisitions, compliance, direct-to-consumer marketing, human resources, recruitment, strategic growth, and technology. In addition, Alliance PT’s billing/coding and risk/compliance professionals provide personalized support around relationships with payers, which is intended to help mitigate potential losses.

“In today’s challenging healthcare environment, independent physical therapy practitioners’ chances for success are much higher if they join forces with other practice operators who share their goals,” said Dotty Bollinger, Managing Partner with GPB Capital responsible for the firm’s Healthcare Strategy. “Alliance Physical Therapy Partners offers entrepreneurial physical therapists the opportunity to provide compassionate care for a greater number of patients while maintaining their individual brands. We are glad to welcome Franklin Rehab to our supportive network of experienced, patient-focused physical therapy practitioners.”
