New York – August 3, 2011 – New MainStream Capital (“NMS”), a private investment firm specializing in strategic equity investments and leveraged buyouts of middle market companies, today announced the completion of a dividend recapitalization for MCCI Holdings, LLC (“MCCI”). Headquartered in Miami, FL, MCCI is a leading provider of medical management services to over 100,000 Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial beneficiaries in Florida and Texas.
MCCI was founded in 1998 by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Jose Armas and Dr. Eduardo Alarcon, Chief Medical Director. In December 2006, the Managing Partners of NMS, formerly of GSUIG LLC, a unit of the Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division, led an investment and recapitalization of the company in partnership with management. MCCI has achieved several milestones in the years since the investment, having grown revenues and membership at a CAGR of 22% and 18%, respectively. In addition, MCCI has successfully expanded its geographic footprint beyond south Florida, having entered the north Florida market in 2009 and the Texas market in 2010.
The $195 million credit facility includes a $155 million Revolving Credit Facility and First Lien Term Loan, which was led by GE Capital Markets, Inc. and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners, with GE Capital Healthcare Financial Services acting as Administrative Agent and SunTrust Bank acting as Syndication Agent. Additionally, Fifth Third Bank and Wells Fargo Bank acted as Co-Documentation Agents. The $40 million Second Lien Term Loan was provided by BlackRock Kelso Capital Corporation.
NMS was formed by Managing Partners Kevin Jordan and Martin Chavez in December 2010 through the spin-out of a group of portfolio companies from the Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division, which included MCCI. In conjunction with the spin-out, NMS joined with the partners of Haas Wheat & Partners to acquire the portfolio and establish the fund. Since the spin-out, NMS has been active in both new investments and realizations, including the acquisition of SunCrest Healthcare in May 2011, and realizations from the successful sale of H2O Plus LLC in July 2011 as well as the MCCI dividend recapitalization.
