Liberty Corporate Finance is pleased to announce the completion of the investment by August Equity in Westpoint Veterinary Group, the UK’s largest farm and production animal veterinary group providing a range of veterinary and support services to the UK livestock and food industries.

Founded in 2000 and headquartered in West Sussex, the business has grown from a single site in Warnham to a national network of 17 branches across the UK with a high-growth internet pharmacy (Farmacy.co.uk), providing a range of support services including training, contract research, international consultancy and compliance/audit management.

Liberty were appointed to provide buyside support to August Equity.

Westpoint’s research-led approach improves the health, welfare and productivity of livestock through preventative health planning. The UK production animal veterinary market is highly fragmented and set for significant growth as the sector undergoes structural and regulatory change and continues to professionalise driven by the need for improved efficiency and productivity.
