LA-based private equity firm Triton Pacific Capital Partners said Tuesday that it has sold Alegis Care to Cigna. No financial terms were disclosed. Raymond James Financial advised Alegis Care in the transaction. Based in Chicago, Alegis Care is a provider of in-home care for chronically ill and elderly patients.
LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Sep 3, 2013) – Triton Pacific Capital Partners, a well-established private equity firm, announced today that Cigna has purchased one of its portfolio companies, Alegis Care.
Alegis Care (previously known as Home Physicians) is a Chicago-based Chronic Care Management, Health Risk Assessment and Medicare Fee for Service organization that was acquired by Triton Pacific in March of 2006. Focused on providing comfortable in-home care for chronically ill and elderly patients, Alegis Care’s services are particularly timely with respect to the Affordable Care Act.
Over the last seven years, Triton Pacific applied its trademark Value Enhancement Program(SM) to Alegis Care. This time-tested business model, in conjunction with the firm’s operating expertise, allowed Alegis Care to accelerate the business’s growth and maximize value.
“We are pleased to have Cigna recognize the value created in Alegis Care. We achieved our strategic positioning of the company to capitalize on the Affordable Care Act’s stated goal of combining cost containment with quality of care,” said Craig J. Faggen, CEO of Triton Pacific. “Cigna is in an excellent position to build and guide Alegis Care through the next phase of growth.”
Triton Pacific’s investors have received distributions over the life of the investment and will receive additional proceeds from the sale. During Triton Pacific’s ownership period, Alegis Care increased in value by more than 2.6 times.
Raymond James Financial, Inc. served as exclusive financial advisor to Alegis Care.
