Chicago, IL, July 8, 2014 – Waud Capital Partners (“Waud Capital” or “WCP”) is off to a busy summer. Last week, its portfolio company, Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACHC), announced that it completed the previously announced acquisition of Partnerships in Care for approximately $662 million in cash. Click HERE for the full press release. The announcement comes on the heels of WCP’s sale of National Security Partners, a cyber security and intelligence company, to Noblis, Inc. in June.
Moreover, Waud Capital remains active on the acquisition front. Since raising nearly $500 million for WCP III in April of 2011, the firm has established six platform companies and completed 33 follow-on acquisitions. However, the fund is less than 40% committed, so WCP is actively seeking new opportunities within the healthcare services and business and related services industries. Of high interest are introductions to the following:
- talented executives with successful track records of building growth-oriented services businesses;
- owners or management of growth-oriented businesses within WCP’s target sectors; and
- smaller companies with strategic value that could be acquisition candidates for WCP’s current portfolio companies.
Waud Capital looks to invest $20 to $100 million in each platform and targets both organic growth and acquisitions as a means of growing its businesses. The firm utilizes a three phase investment strategy, whereby it typically invests a portion of its equity commitment up front and reserves the remaining capital for growth, deploying it over time in order to manage risk.
