Ametros Financial Corporation, a Clarion Capital Partners Portfolio Company, Completes Equity Recapitalization
New York, November 16, 2017 – Ametros Financial Corporation (“Company”), the industry leader in post-settlement medical administration and a Clarion Capital Partners, LLC (“Clarion”) portfolio company, announced that it has received a growth capital investment from Long Ridge Equity Partners (“Long Ridge”). The investment from Long Ridge will support Ametros’ continued growth and allow the Company to further enhance its world-class product and service offerings.
Clarion spun-out Ametros from one of its former portfolio companies in 2010, recognizing a market opportunity for post-settlement medical administration. Ametros provides settlement recipients and self-pay individuals (its “members”) with a broad set of financial and medical management tools, including integrated medical administration tools and reporting, seamless and automated payment technology, and access to significant healthcare discounts for pharmaceuticals, provider visits, and medical equipment.
Ametros has become a trusted partner for thousands of members receiving funds from workers’ compensation and liability settlements, in addition to providing services and solutions for all parties in the settlement process, including plaintiff attorneys, insurance carriers, employers, third party administrators, and structured settlement brokers. With its core products, CareGuard and Amethyst, Ametros enables its members to approach settlement and lifelong financial and medical management with confidence and security.
“We are excited to partner with Long Ridge as we enter our next phase of growth,” Ametros CEO and board member, Marques Torbert, said. “We see tremendous opportunity ahead and remain focused on ensuring that our members receive the best care possible while maximizing their savings.”
Clarion will remain a significant shareholder in the company going forward, and Eric Kogan, a Partner at Clarion, will continue to serve on Ametros’ board of directors. “We look forward to welcoming Long Ridge to the Ametros team,” Kogan said “and we are excited to continue our partnership with Marques and his management team as they embark on their next chapter of growth.”
Ametros received investment banking advice from Match Point Partners LLC, and legal advice from Choate Hall & Stewart LLP. Long Ridge received legal advice from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C. and tax and accounting advice from KPMG LLP.
