School Health Corporation
Sports Club Advisors worked with School Health Corporation to identify, structure and close the acquisition. In addition, JW&Co collaborated with School Health’s management team and legal and financial advisors to close the transaction in less than 60 days.
Focused Fitness was the first EdTech company School Health Corporation purchased, so it was vitally important to understand the underlying technology and the synergies that could be realized by integrating that technology into School Health’s overall market strategy. It was also essential to understand the market overlap between the two companies’ customers.
Sports Club Advisors worked with School Health Corporation to identify and model the transaction’s synergies and build a detailed financial model that tested different scenarios. This allowed School Health Corporation to submit a very compelling offer that the owners of Focused Fitness accepted with minimal negotiation.
The transaction with Focused Fitness was a significant strategic acquisition for School Health Corporation. It will allow School Health to increase its involvement in the physical education sector and use Focused Fitness’s teaching, training, and tracking technology in other areas of School Health’s core business.
