Hugh James advises Cayder on its sale to Cambio


Hugh James has been advising Cayder in legal matters since 2008. The firm has recently helped the final sale of Cayder to Cambio Healthcare.

Cambio Healthcare has acquired Cayder under plans to increase its NHS footprint, boost revenues and earnings and actively participate in the drive to accelerate the NHS agenda for paperless systems and digital transformation.

Cayder will be integrated into Cambio’s UK business operation based in Reading with immediate effect.

The deal follows the appointment of Adrian Stevens as Cambio’s UK and Ireland chief executive to support growth in the business.

Peter Gille, group chief executive of Cambio Healthcare in Sweden, said:

“Cayder has healthy revenues, a strong pipeline, good technology, and talented people.

“Its patient flow and clinical solutions complement our own cosmic clinical products and fit perfectly with our UK strategy to deliver electronic patient records against the government’s paperless targets and digital agenda.”

Stuart Rankin, Cayder’s founder, added:

“The acquisition fits both Cayder and Cambio’s UK strategy and immediately creates a larger customer base and stronger UK market presence. As an SME, we faced increasing pressure with protracted NHS procurement cycles. Joining forces gives all of us the ability to grow exponentially and scale quickly with a sustainable business model.”

Stuart Rankin, has also commented on his experience working with Hugh James:

“Since founding Cayder in 2008 we’ve used Hugh James to help and guide us in all legal matters from Contract drafting, HR guidance through to supporting the final Sale of Cayder to Cambio Healthcare in 2017.

I’d also like to add that during the sale of Cayder when things become very intense they went the extra mile to ensure that everything got completed on time and to the usual high standards.

My personal thanks go to Greg and his team for all the hard work.”
