Advising Bridgepoint on its investment in Identicare

We have advised Bridgepoint Growth on its investment in Identicare, a UK-based pet microchipping and pet owner-focused services company. 

Founded in 1989 by Animalcare plc, Identicare operates the UK’s longest established and largest microchipping and keeper registration database. In 2021, Identicare became a separate subsidiary company and in 2022 signed a development venture with entrepreneur Robert Diamond to help the company develop an innovative range of pet protection services for millions of UK pet lovers.

Bridgepoint acquired Identicare from the Animalcare Group, the international animal health business, for a cash consideration of £24.9 million. This investment brings significant experience to support Identicare with its strategy to grow across all areas of microchipping, registration services and real-time support for pet owners.

Commenting on the transaction, private equity partner and Head of UK M&A team, Emma Danks said: "It has been a pleasure working with the Bridgepoint Growth team again on this latest investment. It is a superb example of our Private Equity transactional and life sciences expertise coming together to deliver a successful transaction."

Private equity partner, Jonny Bethell, further commented: "With the Bridgepoint Growth support, we look forward to seeing Identicare's growth and further success under Robert Diamond's leadership."
