Exit Coincides with Company�s Acquisition by Insignia Capital Group
NEW YORK — June 23, 2015 — Praesidian Capital (�Praesidian� or �the Firm�), a leading provider of mezzanine capital for small and mid-sized companies, confirmed today that it has exited successfully its $11.5 million subordinated debt investment in metanexgen, a provider of technology-enabled multichannel marketing solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. Praesidian�s exit was in concert with DFW Capital Partners sale of the business to Insignia Capital Group.
Praesidian made its first investment in metanexgen�s predecessor company, Meta Pharmaceutical Services, LLC, in 2010 when it was acquired by DFW. Praesidian made a subsequent investment in 2013 when Meta acquired NexGen RxMarketing, LLC and rebranded the combined company metanexgen.
�The support we have had from Praesidian in the past five years has allowed our company to expand and evolve,� stated Brian Tilley, Partner of DFW Capital Partners. �Praesidian provided the kind of partnership that any fast-growing organization most desires and rarely finds. We are grateful to the entire Praesidian team.�
According to Glenn Harrison, Praesidian Partner, �This has been a highly successful relationship at all levels. We wish metanexgen only the best as they continue on their growth path.�
