Pamplona Capital Management said Monday it has sold MedAssets’ Spend and Clinical Resource Management segment to Vizient Inc. Financial terms weren’t announced. Pamplona acquired MedAssets for $2.7 billion in January.
LONDON & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pamplona Capital Management (Pamplona) is pleased to announce it has completed the sale of MedAssets’ Spend and Clinical Resource Management (SCM) segment to Vizient, Inc., the largest member-owned health care company in the country.
The sale marks the final step in Pamplona’s plan to combine MedAssets’ Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) segment with Precyse, a Pamplona-owned health information management (HIM) company, to create a leader in the end-to-end revenue cycle services, technology and education market.
“The completion of this sale was a critical piece in executing our vision for building a national leader in the end-to-end revenue cycle services, technology and education market,” said Jeremy Gelber, M.D., partner at Pamplona Capital Management. “We can now proceed with full integration of the combined MedAssets-Precyse enterprise, leveraging the strengths of each company to better meet the demands of our evolving reimbursement environment.”
In addition to the sale of the MedAssets SCM segment, Pamplona and Vizient have agreed to coordinate efforts in select service areas to serve their mutual members and customers.
“Vizient’s acquisition of MedAssets’ SCM and Sg2 businesses creates a stronger, more robust suite of offerings that appeal to leaders and clinicians in the organizations we serve – from academic medical centers, to non-acute and acute care centers, to pediatric facilities,” said Curt Nonomaque, president and chief executive officer of Vizient. “They will benefit from our expanded capabilities in sourcing, consulting, analytics and collaboration to gain insight that fuels care innovation and operational efficiency, and ultimately, improves people’s lives.”
Pamplona purchased MedAssets for $31.35 per share, which represents a total enterprise value of approximately $2.7 billion. The transaction closed in January 2016. Vizient purchased the SCM segment of MedAssets for an undisclosed sum.
