Momentum Healthware President, Rod Kamins said:

“For over 25 years, our internationally recognised healthcare software has been helping people to live better, safer lives. 

We now begin an exciting new chapter, one in which we can offer our customers a far wider and more comprehensive range of world-class software to deal with the challenges they face today - and prepare for those of tomorrow." 

Robert Stroud – Civica Group M&A Director, commented  

“Great to work on another successful transaction with WTA Partners and our continuing partnership.

Glenn Tinkler, former CEO of Momentum Healthware, further commented

"We were impressed by the manner in which WTA engaged with us to present the Civica market proposition and as ambassadors for their business. They continued to pro-actively work with us through the initial process and to help position the best deal for the benefit of both parties. The process roadmap that WTA described at the beginning of the engagement was exactly how the process unfolded, with no surprises. WTA clearly understood the needs of both parties and ensured that those needs were met."

Alan Butterworth, WTA’s partner further commented 

"This is a transformational deal for Civica as they strategically grow their business into the North American market, and we are delighted to continue to be working in partnership with them. This is the eighth transaction we have concluded as part of our ongoing work and our first overseas deal.

Over the last year, we have invested in establishing operations in North America and creating a bridge to the UK to enable corporate technology transactions between the continents on both the buy and sell side.  

We’re delighted to have been able to facilitate the deal for Civica and we are looking forward to continuing to build our cross-border capabilities.”
