Phuong Chau Group has received a major investment from CVC Capital Partners

We are pleased to announce that our client, Phuong Chau Trade and Investment Joint Stock Company, the operator of the leading private and premium Phuong Chau branded hospitals in southern Vietnam (“Phuong Chau Group”), has received a major investment from CVC Capital Partners.

ASART was the exclusive lead advisor to Phuong Chau Group. Our work includes a comprehensive scope of advice on strategies, structures, valuation, due diligence, value creation, and the execution of the full process from originating to closing, amid the peak of COVID’s pandemic.

According to Binh Le, CEO and Head of M&A of ASART Deal Advisory, also the Engagement Partner leading this transaction from the sell-side, CVC Capital Partners and Phuong Chau Group’s transaction is an important project that can significantly change the healthcare market in Vietnam for the better, by making premium private healthcare more affordable and providing more choices for all of us, especially for the more vulnerable groups including women, infants, and children.

Vietnam’s healthcare has been relying heavily on public hospitals and pressure on these facilities is high, especially at the central level and in specialized hospitals. Most hospitals and healthcare facilities in Vietnam are still not well maintained, lack sufficient equipment and human resources, and has poor service quality. There are a few private and premium names in the market but there have not been any major improvement or capacity increase for the last 10 years and demand for modern facilities, specialized treatments, and high-quality patient services is still exceeding supply by a large gap.

Phuong Chau Group is the leading private and premium healthcare provider in Vietnam focusing on excellent customer experience and offering comprehensive healthcare services with women being the center of all services. Phuong Chau has three hospitals in the Mekong Delta and with CVC’s investment and strategic support it has a strong potential to become a national champion in Vietnam in the very near future.
