PRIVATE EQUITY

Great Point Partners (“GPP”) announced that its GPP I portfolio company Health Systems International (“HSI”), has successfully completed a dividend recapitalization. This transaction was an attractive opportunity for HSI’s shareholders, which include HSI Management and GPP’s Limited Partners, to receive a significant return on their investment in the company. After taking into account the dividend recapitalization, HSI still possesses ample borrowing capacity and will continue to pursue attractive acquisition opportunities in 2013.
This recapitalization occurred only five months after GPP I’s successful sale of Caprion Proteomics for 3.4x invested capital.
