Extend: Alpine Investors-backed TEAM Services Group, which was the subject of a continuation fund process last year, added-on 24 Hour Home Care, which provides non-medical home care to seniors and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The deal will allow 24 Hour Home Care’s plans to expand across the country. It will continue operating under its brand name within TEAM Public Choices, a division of TEAM that works with clients through Medicaid and other state-sponsored disability programs.
24 Hour Home Care’s founders David Allerby and Ryan Iwamoto will continue in their respective roles as CEO and president, working alongside TEAM Services CEO Josh Greenberg.
Alpine closed its process for TEAM Services in January, moving it from its Fund V and SBIC V pools. The single-asset process was led by HarbourVest Partners, Neuberger Berman, Pantheon and Hamilton Lane, along with a collection of new and existing Fund V LPs.
The total value of the deal was about $362 million. Lazard worked as secondary adviser on the process. Read more here.
