Retail Pharmacy

Client profile: Magawell Limited t/a Evans Pharmacy

The Business

Magawell Limited currently trades as Evans Pharmacies and has 3 sites in West Wales. Magawell Limited is owned and managed by Mo Nazemi, who is supported by an external investor in relation to his growth plans.

Due to restrictions in the sector, growth is mainly achieved through acquisition and this also provides an exit route for pharmacists seeking succession for their outlets.

Magawell Limited has a strategy to grow the number of pharmacies within the company to provide critical mass and regional coverage.

The Transaction

Magawell Limited acquired the trade and assets of 7 retail pharmacies in South East and West Wales from AE Petersen Limited.
