ExamWorks agrees deal to buy Kindertons Group


Medical report and rehabilitation provider ExamWorks UK is acquiring the Kindertons group of accident management and mobility companies.

ExamWorks, which owns medico-legal report provider Premex Group, is significantly expanding its UK offering to the insurance and legal sectors with the deal for Kindertons. The acquisition will add six brands to its stable, including personal injury law firm Jigsaw Law.

Also a part of the deal is Kindertons Accident Management, which provides full accident management and mobility solutions to the UK motor and insurance industry.

Commenting on the acquisition, Donald Fowler, CEO of ExamWorks UK, said: “We are excited at the prospect of Kindertons becoming part of the ExamWorks family. Independently, both ExamWorks and Kindertons have worked hard to provide industry leading services to the insurance and legal sectors. There is clear synergy and shared vision between our two businesses and the transaction will allow us to diversify our service offering to both existing and new clients.”

“The two companies have evolved and grown over the past 20 years with amazing parallels, and combining the two groups creates a truly unique and market leading business with huge opportunities for both our group and our customers.”

Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, TLT, Evercore and Pinsent Masons all advised on the deal, which also includes Kindertons companies Plantec Assist, Sovereign Automotive, Crusader Assistance and JP Morriss.
