Eight years after its initial investment, Linden Capital Partners has sold CORPAK Medsystems, for $174 million. CORPAK develops and manufactures a portfolio of enteral access devices such as enteral feeding safety devices and nasogastric feeding tubes for hospitals, nursing homes and home care.
The buyer is Halyard Health (NYSE: NYH), another medical device company focused on preventing infection, eliminating pain and speeding recovery for healthcare providers and their patients. CORPAK’s line of nasogastric tubes complements Halyard’s existing enteral feeding products. Based on published annual revenue of $54 million, we get a multiple of 3.2x. Not bad, for 2016.
