GREENWICH, CT and MULLINGAR, IRELAND – Great Point Partners (“GPP”), a Greenwich-based private investment firm focused exclusively on the health care industry, announced today that it has exited its investment in SteriPack Group (“SteriPack” or the “Company”) to Inflexion, a market-leading private equity firm. With facilities in Poland, the United States, and Malaysia, SteriPack is a global contract manufacturer providing integrated solutions for medical device, diagnostic, and pharmaceutical combination products. The Company provides award winning product design & development, human factors research & engineering, design for manufacturing, regulatory, quality assurance, manufacturing, sterilization, and supply chain management.
Bret Tenenhaus, Principal at GPP, commented, “In 2019 we were proactively searching globally for an investment in the medical device manufacturing sector. We wanted a platform whose leaders saw the value of both vertical integration of capabilities and geographic expansion. During our ownership period SteriPack grew revenue approximately 40% per year by expanding its business lines through both organic investments and two add-on acquisitions. We were fortunate to work with great entrepreneurs and leaders at SteriPack and look forward to watching the Company prosper for years to come.”
“When I joined SteriPack, I was excited to partner with Great Point because of their health care expertise, track record of success in life sciences manufacturing services, and trans-Atlantic M&A experience. I am proud of what we have all accomplished together and the bright future ahead,” Andrew McLean, Chief Executive Officer at SteriPack, stated.
“GPP sourced and led the negotiations of our two U.S. based design & development acquisitions: New Jersey based HS Design and Colorado-based Halleck Willard, Inc” added David Lennon, Chairman of SteriPack. “These have exceeded our own expectations and opened doors into several new growth opportunities already.”
CMD Global Partners served as financial advisor to SteriPack, and Maples served as the Company’s legal counsel.
