It was late last year that Infratil had acquired Qscan as part of the same expansion mission. The deal worth A$290M was sealed last December and they had ownership of 56.52% of the shares of the business from its previous shareholders, which were a mix of the management, doctors, as well as Quadrant private equity.

Word from the CEO

Jason Boyes, the CEO of Infratil, was of the view that when the Pacific Radiology acquisition was completed, it should be an addition to the already acquired Qscan last year. Diagnostic imaging is a big part of the plans made by the Company. Pacific Radiology, which is the country’s largest diagnostic imaging provider, would be really helpful in achieving the goals that Infratil hopes to fulfil in the near future.

Further, this purchase solidifies Infratil’s belief in the ever-growing New Zealand market, and that there is ample scope for the Company to grow and achieve bigger things in the future.

Dr Adrian Balasingam, the chairman of the Pacific Radiology group, is of the view that the team of shareholder doctors in Pacific Radiology is glad to have partnered up with a dependable partner, Infratil.
