Houston – July 31, 2017 – CRG, a premier healthcare-focused investment firm, today announced the closing of a $355 million term loan securitization on behalf of CRG Partners III, L.P. and certain of its parallel investment vehicles. The transaction was completed on July 27, 2017.
The securitization transaction – or Asset-Backed Securities financing – is the second securitization completed by CRG and represents the latest milestone in CRG’s ability to deliver pioneering growth capital financing solutions to the global healthcare market. The financing consists of $355 million of notes that were sold through a private placement offering. The financing was oversubscribed and the notes were purchased by a broad syndicate of sophisticated institutional investors.
Mike Weinmann, CRG Managing Director, commented, “This transaction strengthens our ability to offer attractive long-term financing solutions to our business partners and underscores CRG’s access to the capital markets. Notably, the financing was completed at more favorable pricing and terms, and raised more than twice the proceeds as our inaugural financing last year. The transaction further differentiates CRG from its competitors as a proven healthcare investor and improves our cost of capital advantage to continue meeting the demand for raising growth capital.”
Goldman, Sachs & Co. LLC acted as exclusive placement agent.
