Buyer Demand For Australian Aged Care Businesses

Dru Morgan, the Director of Morgan Business Sales, believes that this has been coming for a long time.

“For years we have been hearing about Australia’s ageing population and the opportunity this shift will present. But we didn’t see this reflected with increased buyer demand in this industry. It performed close to the market average. In 2022, the switch has been flicked. There are many parties active in the market now. All looking to roll up the assets they need to be significant players in this fast growing industry.”

While this is great on its own, Mr Morgan says there are two more factors adding fuel to the fire in this market.

“An interesting quirk in aged care is the share of the market which is serviced by non-profit organisations. 80% of in-home service providers are non-profits. Compounding this, it’s becoming harder to get the licenses required to start a new business in this sector. So we’ve got a small pool of for-profit businesses in existence. Few new players entering the market. The perfect storm.”

Mr Morgan says that business owners with an established aged care business are well positioned to achieve a significant exit.

“Business valuation comes down to supply and demand. Markets with small supply and large demand like we’re seeing in aged care result in an excellent outcome for a business owner.”
