TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2022 /CNW/ – Kensington Capital Partners Limited (“Kensington”) is pleased to announce a significant co-investment by BDC Growth Equity Partners (a division of BDC Capital), Horizon Capital Holdings (“Horizon”), and other co-investors in Resolute Health Corporation Limited (“Resolute”), a leading Canadian healthcare services business specializing in the testing and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (“OSA”). Kensington acquired a controlling interest in Resolute in June of this year.
Established in 2005 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia by Dr. Neil Smith as The Snore Shop, the company grew to become the largest provider of sleep therapy in Eastern Canada. Resolute subsequently expanded across the country to become the largest independent provider of sleep therapy and a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of OSA. Today, Resolute operates 73 clinics under 9 regional brands across 6 provinces and has provided testing and OSA therapy to over 250,000 patients with its differentiated, patient-centric approach to providing high-quality medical care.
“We are excited to support the Canadian leader in the sleep therapy sector and look forward to working with management and Kensington to continue to scale the business through organic initiatives as well as through select acquisitions,” said Loren Rafeson, Partner, BDC Growth Equity Partners. “Underpinning our investment thesis is the increasing awareness of the importance of sleep health, especially given that sleep apnea remains significantly undiagnosed across the population.”
“Horizon is thrilled to partner with Resolute’s management team to support the vision of scaling a Canadian leader in the sleep wellness industry,” said Alex Farley of Horizon. “We are pleased to engage in this exciting growth endeavour with an excellent and strategic group such as Kensington,” adds Enzo Gabrielli of Horizon.
Headquartered in Bedford, Nova Scotia, Resolute Health Corporation Limited is an independent healthcare service provider established by experienced healthcare professionals, primarily focused on the testing and treatment of patients suffering with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
