SPI Digital Health: The Hanging Questions of Babylon

Published: May 16, 2023

Last week, Babylon Health announced that it had secured a $34.5M interim loan to support ongoing operations as it embarks on a wide-ranging restructuring and re-capitalisation programme. At the same time, the company said it would come back into private ownership next month.  

The news comes as the UK-based provider juggles widening net losses, mounting debts and rock-bottom shares, despite burgeoning revenues from its US value-based care (VBC) activities. 

The bridging loan and delisting plan are the latest in a stream of efforts by Babylon Health to slash losses and restructure debts with the goal of becoming profitable. Last year the company, which offers virtual, in-person and post-care services in 15 countries, said it aimed to cut annual costs by $100M.
