Human Capital: Supporting the acquisition of Tempdent by Knovia Group, backed by Sovereign Capital

Armstrong is pleased to have provided Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) to Sovereign Capital Partners in support of the newly created Knovia Group’s acquisition of Tempdent. 

Backed by Sovereign, Knovia is a market-leading commercial training business specialising in the healthcare and educational sectors, including existing Sovereign portfolio company Paragon Skills. 

Tempdent is the leading specialist in dental training in the UK, delivering high-quality apprenticeships, post-registration qualifications, CPD, and recruitment services for aspiring dental professionals. 

The deal will accelerate Knovia’s ambition to become the leading provider of healthcare and education training in the UK through organic growth and further strategic acquisitions.  

Our voice of the customer exercise tested the strength of Tempdent’s key customer relationships and explained its differentiators. We helped Knovia and Sovereign get a better understanding of Tempdent’s value to its students and customers, and validated its delivery of high quality apprenticeship training and pastoral support. 

Sophie Zgraja, Consultant, said: “We think Tempdent is a fantastic business, and its customers gave very complimentary feedback. It’s a great fit with Knovia and we look forward to seeing the businesses growing together.”
