Bridgepoint Investment Banking Arranges Minority Shareholder Buyout Financing for Atlas MedStaff
January 25, 2022 – Omaha, NE – Bridgepoint Investment Banking (“Bridgepoint”) acted as the sole financing arranger to Atlas MedStaff (“Atlas”) on their debt capital raise, which supported the buyout of multiple minority shareholders.
Bridgepoint’s leveraged finance process found Atlas MedStaff a solid financing partner in a large US bank, allowing the company to enter its next phase of growth and enabling President Steve Ryan and Chief Marketing Officer Rich Smith to consolidate ownership and fully realize the future growth of the company.
After a successful commercial bank refinancing in spring of 2021, Atlas again trusted Bridgepoint’s staffing sector team, led by Chad Gardiner, to deliver the best deal for Atlas MedStaff, keeping the company’s best interests at the forefront throughout the process. Bridgepoint facilitated a friendly and good-faith transaction between the company, the selling shareholders and the financing sources. Bridgepoint’s staffing investment banking experts ultimately negotiated competitive pricing and terms that helped Atlas lower their cost of capital and position them for the next phase of growth.
Bridgepoint Director and staffing sector lead Chad Gardiner commented, “We were thrilled to bring liquidity to the shareholders of Atlas Medstaff at attractive financing terms. This flexible financing will enable the Company’s exceptional management team to continue to fund growth and lead the travel nurse staffing market.”
“This is the second time Bridgepoint has come through for us in the last year. We look forward to working with them on future projects,” added Steve Ryan, President of Atlas MedStaff.
