NEW YORK – March 23, 2017 – Praesidian Capital, a leading provider of senior and subordinated capital for small and mid-sized businesses, announced today that it has successfully exited its $23 million investment in PromptCare Companies (“PromptCare”, “the Company”).
PromptCare, a portfolio company of MidMark Capital, is a leading regional provider of specialty respiratory products and infusion therapy services. The Company has built its reputation on providing technologically advanced equipment and superior therapeutic professionals for in-home patient care. Praesidian made its first investment in PromptCare in 2011 and made two subsequent investments to continue supporting the Company’s strategic growth.
“Praesidian’s participation came at the right time to allow us to acquire our Pro2 business and strengthen our balance sheet,” stated Tom Voorhees, PromptCare President and CEO. “They proved an excellent partner throughout our recent acquisition period, including our latest move into Boston last year. We are grateful for their support in reinforcing PromptCare’s strong market presence in complex respiratory, infusion and nutritional therapies that sustain our patients on a daily basis.”
Douglas Parker, Managing Director at MidMark Capital, noted: “Praesidian has proven to be the right financial partner from the beginning, when we needed an expert to meet an aggressive timetable to close an acquisition. Their dedication has been an invaluable component of the PromptCare success story.”
“Our collaboration with MidMark and PromptCare has shown what can happen when the right resources come together effectively,” stated Glenn Harrison, Praesidian Capital Partner. “We have enjoyed being part of PromptCare’s recent expansion period and wish the Company continued success.”
