Tokyo healthcare communications firm invests in "perfect fit" Yorkshire acquisition
A Leeds-based healthcare business has been acquired by the Tokyo headquartered company M3.
M3, which owns media platforms such as Doctors.net, has acquired Yorkshire company ONEHealth Communications for an undisclosed amount.
The Japanese firm was established in 2000 and operates in North and South America, Asia Pacific and Europe. Through its media platforms, such as Doctors.net in the UK, it provides information related services including drug listings, news and education to a network of more than six million doctor members globally.
M3 took an interest in ONEHealth due to its reach across other healthcare professionals such as nurses, pharmacists and healthcare stakeholders, as well as its content generation and media planning services.
Launched in 2009, ONEHealth Communications is a healthcare communications agency with its head office in Leeds and offices in London and Newcastle. It specialises in media, creative content and GDPR compliant email services.
ONEHealth will now operate as an independent brand within the M3 Group.
David Sewards, chair of ONEHealth, said: “We bought what evolved into ONEHealth following the recession at the turn of the decade, recognising the robust nature of the pharma/healthcare sector.
“After several acquisitions during that period, including purchasing the data4NHS database, we grew the company into a highly profitable, innovative business.
“As shareholders, we felt the next stage of the company’s development required it to join a multinational player in the sector and we’re delighted that M3 saw the value in what we had created.
“We think it’s the perfect fit for the incredible ONEHealth team and we wish them well with their exciting next chapter.”
