Significant events subsequent to the closure of the period
On 30 September 2021 Physitrack PLC announced the acquisition of Fysiotest Europa AB, a Company registered in Sweden. The acquisition is financed by upfront consideration of SEK 15.0 million, payable in cash and a further potential aggregate earnout consideration of up to SEK 55.0 million. The earnout consideration is payable dependant on stretching growth targets being achieved over a four-year period.
The acquisition of Fysiotest allows the Physitrack Group to further capitalise on the opportunity to offer an enhanced individualised virtual-first care journey by utilising Fysiotest's uniquely successful methodology. The acquisition allows Physitrack and other Group companies such as Rehabplus, to enhance its care offering to include testing, assessments, analysis and coaching. The acquisition allows Physitrack to leverage the proven success of Fysiotest's Nordic offering at a global scale.
Fysiotest's revenue streams are highly recurring, with there being scope to complement its business model with a subscription model which would give SaaS-like revenue streams, in line with how the Group envisions all business lines will operate in the near-term.
Overall, the acquisition of Fysiotest means the Group will have the best technology, methodology and in-house team to ensure we can optimise our service offering for the Group's customers across the globe.
In the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 Fysiotest is expected to record revenues of SEK 12.0 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of SEK 1.8 million or an EBITDA margin of 15 per cent. On a standalone bases, Fysiotest is expected to execute growth in line with the Group's communicated organic sales growth target exceeding 30 per cent annual growth in the medium term. Physitrack expects a contraction in the Group's EBITDA margin shortly post-acquisition. However, in the medium term as cash generation, earnings growth and reduced costs expected from realised synergies are realised, the EBITDA margin will return to communicated levels.
As outlined within the IPO prospectus, Physitrack's Board of Directors has adopted a set of financial targets linked to the Company's Strategy as set forth below:
Growth: Physitrack aims to achieve annual organic sales growth exceeding 30 per cent in the medium term, further supplemented by impact from future add-on acquisitions.
Margin: Physitrack targets an EBITDA margin of 40-45 per cent in the medium term, with potential short term margin extractions due to add-on acquisitions impacting margins negatively.
There are no changes to these financial targets.
