Halifax-backed Promptcare sale process underway, CBPE makes ~11x return on Xceptor

Halifax-backed PromptCare goes on the block and Astorg Partners invests in Xceptor.

Happy Tuesday, readers!

We have news of a sale process, one that could result in two separate transactions stemming from the sale of one PE-backed platform.

The Halifax Group’s PromptCare, composed of a complex respiratory business and a infusion-therapy business, is on the sale block, four sources told PE Hub. Each of the two business account for roughly half of the company and together have nearly tripled in size since Halifax made its investment, some of the people said.

The process could result in two separate transactions, as many potential suitors have a thesis around one category or the other, the people said.

Lincoln International is providing sell-side financial advice on the process, the people said. First-round bids have been submitted and the process is in its second rounds, they said.

Both businesses are good quality but quite different, which could may make underwriting both challenging for buyers, some of the people said.

Private equity is more likely to gravitate to the infusion business given its capital-light nature, with the space growing increasingly popular in recent years, sources said.
