This transaction highlights Results Healthcare’s capabilities in assisting private equity bidders to build a thesis and move at pace through a competitive process.

Headquartered in London (UK) and North Carolina (US), the business operates across an international network of 12 offices. The business is focused on a highly attractive niche and is well-regarded by its customers for supporting them with their most critical and challenging data-related work.

We are pleased to have been supported by Results Healthcare on this transaction. Their sector knowledge and relationships were valuable, and put us in a great position to invest in this impressive business.
