Katten advises RGD on acquisition of Enamel Dental
Katten Muchin Rosenman UK LLP announced today (26 August) that it has advised Real Good Dental (RGD), a portfolio company of Katten’s long-standing global private equity client TriSpan, on its strategic investment in the Enamel Dental Group (Enamel Dental).
TriSpan, with the backing of Keyhaven Capital, had initially invested in RGD in June 2021 and backed this investment in the Enamel Dental Group as part of developing RGD across the UK.
Since it was established in 2017, Enamel Dental has grown rapidly through a focused acquisition strategy, and now comprises a total of 68 surgeries within 18 trading practices across the UK.
The business has approximately 130 self-employed associates and hygienists supported by a loyal and dedicated team of over 130 support staff. The predominately private group prides itself as a local dental platform offering comprehensive dental services to both private and NHS patients.
The Enamel Dental management team will continue running the group while joining forces with the wider RGD group.
Katten office managing partner Christopher Hitchins worked alongside the firm’s London Corporate team, which included senior associate David Wood and associate Alex Taylor, who were also assisted by various practice groups including Private Credit, Real Estate, Employment, Intellectual Property and Tax.
Commenting on the deal, Katten Corporate senior associate David Wood (top) said: “It has been a pleasure working with the TriSpan team again on their latest strategic investment. After their investment in RGD in 2021, this particular deal marks RGD’s move into England and we look forward to supporting the development of Enamel Dental and the wider group.”
Fady Michel Abouchalache and Joseph-Patrick Dib, partners at TriSpan added: “We are very proud to welcome the Enamel Dental Group into the RGD family and are looking forward to working with Jagdeep, Zak and their teams in continuing to develop Enamel and the wider group.”
