Greenwich Capital Group (“GCG”) is pleased to announce its role as the exclusive financial advisor to United Vein & Vascular Centers (“UVVC” or the “Company”) on its acquisition by Amulet Capital Partners, LP (“Amulet”). This transaction adds to GCG’s extensive experience in the healthcare services sector.
About the Transaction
Established in Florida in 2014, UVVC has grown its footprint nationwide over the last eight years and expanded its platform to provide comprehensive vascular care treatments and services across a range of vein, arterial and persistent wound conditions. The Company’s physicians are board-certified surgeons and vein specialists committed to advancing the latest technologies in vascular treatment and providing the highest quality care while delivering an all-inclusive clinic experience for patients. Today, UVVC operates more than 30 clinical locations across Florida, Illinois, Colorado, and Arizona, with plans to add more locations in both new and existing markets.
In partnering with UVVC, Amulet will support the Company’s long-term growth objectives and the expansion of high-quality treatment capabilities as patient demand for more accessible, office-based treatment settings continues to grow. Amulet will work closely with management to strategically grow the Company’s network of office locations and service mix in both existing and new markets and provide care for more complex lower extremity vascular conditions.
“UVVC has built a tremendous business by focusing on quality patient care and offering its services to a broad market. GCG focused on finding the best partner for UVVC in order to help facilitate further expansion and growth. Amulet’s experience with rapidly growing companies in the healthcare industry made them an ideal fit for UVVC,” said Brian Hock, Managing Director of GCG.
UVVC will continue to be led by founder and CEO Dr. Gamal Wazni and the existing management team as the Company builds on its strong track record of organic growth and commitment to patient outcomes.
“On behalf of the entire GCG deal team, it was a pleasure representing UVVC through this milestone transaction to support Dr. Wazni’s vision for the growth of this emerging vein and vascular platform,” said Joe Schmitt, Managing Director of GCG. “This transaction is representative of the macro trends we’re seeing across healthcare services more broadly – where entrepreneurial-minded physicians have built high-quality managed services organizations that attract collaborative partnerships from private equity investors.”
