IPO and Beyond: A Corporate Governance Roadmap

Case Study - Mediclinic

Mediclinic International plc is a private hospital group operating in Southern Africa, Switzerland and the Middle East. It’s headquartered in South Africa, has a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and is a FTSE 250 company.

We’ve been their trusted advisers since 2013 when we were appointed to provide company secretarial support to Al Noor Hospitals Group, an Abu Dhabi business, in anticipation of its IPO in London.

We supported Al Noor through the complexities of its initial listing and, two years later, a reverse takeover by Mediclinic and its subsequent admittance to the FTSE 100 index.

Retaining our role, the main initiatives after the reverse takeover included:

  • Familiarising the chairman and other new board members with UK legislation and corporate governance
  • Integrating ourselves long distance into the existing secretariat in South Africa.

Since then, we have provided tailored advice to Mediclinic on a variety of matters as part of our ongoing role. We have a strong working relationship with the group and are an integral part of the team. Those of us working with Mediclinic feel like we wear two badges: Mediclinic and Company Matters.

Other corporate actions

As your company grows and develops, you may consider a number of corporate actions such as:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Divestment
  • Changing the organisation of your share capital
  • Or raising additional investment.

We can help you make the complex more simple.

We often provide health checks e.g. preparing a group of companies for sale, or making sure all is in order post-acquisition. From planning to delivery, we are here to support you.
