Pamplona Capital Management, a New York-based investment group, announced its acquisition of MedAssets, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDAS) for $2.7 billion. MedAssets provides technology-enabled products and services for hospitals, health systems, non-acute healthcare providers, payers and other service providers. The price of $2.7 billion represents $31.35 per share. Pamplona already has an agreement in place to divest MedAssets’ Spend and Clinical Resource Management segment to VHA-UHC Alliance for an undisclosed price. VHA and UHC merged earlier this year to form the largest member-owned health care company in the United States. That leaves Pamplona Capital with MedAssets’ Revenue Cycle Management segment, which it intends to combine with Precyse, a health information company it acquired in July 2015 from Altaris Capital Partners and NewSpring Capital. The combined company will offer end-to-end RCM and HIM solutions.
