Nova Leap Purchases Home Health Business, Molina Healthcare Sells Pathways

Nova Leap Completes New Hampshire Home Health Care Acquisition

Nova Leap Health Corp. (TSXV: NLH), an international provider of personal home care and support services, has completed its acquisition of the business assets of New Hampshire-based Living at Home SeniorCare. Nova Leap is a Canadian company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The execution of the definitive agreement and related information pertaining to the acquisition were previously announced in August.


Under terms of the acquisition, Nova Leap subsidiary Armistead NH II, Inc. acquired the business assets of Living at Home SeniorCare, including customer contracts and intellectual property.  The acquired business will begin to operate under one of Nova Leap’s existing brands, Armistead Senior Care, which has operations in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Nova Leap’s forecasted annualized recurring revenue run rate is about $15 million following the acquisition of Living at Home SeniorCare’s business, according to the company.

The acquisition represents Nova Leap’s eighth investment in New England and third in New Hampshire. The company currently has about 600 employees in Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Nova Scotia.


Nova Leap, which first went public in 2016, has been particularly active in recent months in acquiring, managing and building home care services companies. It generally focuses on the highly fragmented market of smaller, privately held companies.

The company completed the purchase of its third Massachusetts home care business earlier in October.

Nova Leap is eying continued grow through an ongoing strategy that combines acquisitions and organic growth with a focus on North American companies.
