Real estate asset due diligence 

The Challenge
In 2021, Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC), a key owner of NZ Healthcare Bidco, appointed the Colliers Strategic Advisory team to complete real estate asset due diligence, to support the corporate acquisition of Evolution Healthcare. Evolution Healthcare is the second-largest corporate hospital platform in New Zealand. The complexity of the project was such that QIC engaged with multiple external advisors. The project was also highly confidential and fast-paced. 

The Strategy
Strategic Advisory’s consulting focused on providing detailed insights for each healthcare asset that QIC could use to support its decision making. A key focus was highlighting any risks and opportunities associated with each asset. This included reviewing more than 100 complex documents in detail.

The Solution

The Strategic Advisory team used their expertise to produce a consulting report that incorporated various issues including:

• Asset and lease due diligence for 10 properties in New Zealand and one in Australia. This included an in-depth review and summary of each lease, seismic assessments, and development agreements 

• Demographic profile and demand analysis for each asset within specific catchment areas using innovative technology such as QGIS

Existing and future competitor supply analysis for each asset within specific catchment areas using innovative technology such as QGIS

• Providing insights and identifying risk areas within the healthcare sector, including barriers to greenfield developments, rents, development returns, and the occupancy status of comparable assets

The Result

Using the advice produced by Strategic Advisory, NZ Healthcare Bidco successfully acquired Evolution Healthcare for more than $100 million. The Overseas Investment Office decision on the sale was finalised in May 2022. The Strategic Advisory team were pleased to help QIC achieve its goals, after a competitive process with multiple interested buyers.
