Nord Anglia Education Limited has acquired the school operations of The Regent’s International School, Pattaya (“Regent’s Pattaya”).
Regent’s Pattaya is a premium K12 international school located in Pattaya, Thailand with current enrolment for the 2013 academic year of c. 950 students. Pattaya is located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, 120km southeast of Bangkok, adjacent to some of the largest industrial estates in the Eastern Seaboard region of Thailand. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the region, with a large ex-pat community.
Nord acquired the business by purchasing NNN Holding Limited's ("NNN") 49% direct and indirect interests in the share capital of Regent Pattaya Campus Management Co. Ltd (“RPCM”), a company formed to hold the acquired school’s business. The purchase price totalled THB$960 million (£20m), of which THB$700 million (£14.6m) was paid at completion and THB$110 million (£2.3m) and THB$150 million (£3.1m) are payable one year and two years after completion, respectively.
RPCM has been granted a 25 year lease over the school’s land and buildings by NNN. An affiliate will also provide consultancy services in relation to the management and operation of private international schools in Thailand. The acquisition of Regent’s Pattaya diversifies NAE’s geographic footprint in a growing market.
