Business Description

IDH trades under the mydentist brand and is Europe’s largest vertically-integrated dental business and the United Kingdom’s number one dental practice chain. The company has 598 NHS dentistry contracts across a network of 677 dental practices throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. As at 31 March 2016, IDH's patient services division had a market share of approximately 7% in terms of revenue and a market share of approximately 5% in terms of number of practices and held contracts for approximately 15% of all units of dental activity commissioned in England and Wales. IDH dental practices, operating under the “mydentist” brand, offer a broad range of primary care dental services, including dental examinations, fillings and extractions, as well as more specialised dental services such as cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics. IDH is also a leading provider of private dentistry services in the United Kingdom, which has grown quickly as the UK economy has strengthened. IDH operates in the UK dental market, which benefits from stability in terms of volume and pricing and from favourable systemic trends, including continued government focus on improving access to dental services, favourable demographic trends and an increasing overall spend on dentistry. Through their practice services division, IDH is a leading supplier of dental and other medical consumables and materials and services (including installation and servicing of specialized dental equipment), selling dental supplies and services to at least 8,000 dental practices, including its patient services division’s dental practices, with an estimated market share of 25% in the United Kingdom, by revenue.

* This is the estimated return an investor can expect to receive over the next 12 months expressed in percentage terms. It is the sum of the expected interest payments over the year and where the coupon is partly dependent on Libor uses market based Libor forecasts at each coupon date and also takes into account the Note's current price. It is gross of taxation and our Service Fee. The current yield is therefore an estimated return only and is not guaranteed and may be revised in the future.
** This is an estimated annualised return gross of taxation and our Service Fee assuming the investment is held to maturity. It equates the present value of expected future interest payments of a Note into an annual yield across its life relative to the Note's current price. Where the interest coupon is partly dependent on Libor it uses market based forecasts of Libor and assumes that all interest is re-invested at a rate equal to the Yield to Maturity. For floating rate coupons because current market based forecasts are for Libor to increase in future years the calculation of Yield to Maturity assumes the interest paid to investors will be higher in future years. However, there is no guarantee that the Bank of England will raise interest rates or that Libor will increase as a result. In addition, any changes to the financial circumstances of the company or changes in the economic terms of the underlying loan could also impact future interest payments. The Yield to Maturity is therefore an estimated return only and is not guaranteed.
