CIT’s healthcare finance business provided $110 million in senior secured credit facilities to Quipt Home Medical. The financing consists of a delayed draw term loan and a revolving credit facility. Proceeds will be used to refinance existing debt and provide capital for future growth, including acquisitions. CIT served as administrative agent and sole lead arranger.
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Quipt is a home medical equipment company that focuses on in-home monitoring and disease management services, including end-to-end respiratory solutions.
“We believe this financing validates the strength of our business model and will enable us to continue to pursue our aggressive growth strategy,” Greg Crawford, chairman and CEO of Quipt, said. “Additionally, we continue to source opportunities across the United States in attractive markets and believe the ability to access meaningful additional funding leaves us well positioned to capitalize on opportunities as they present themselves. As always, we will continue to remain very disciplined in our capital allocation strategy, maintaining a very healthy balance sheet with a conservative leverage structure.”
“We greatly appreciated the value of CIT’s agility and deep industry knowledge in understanding our needs and arranging this financing package, which allows us to optimize financial performance and shareholder value,” Hardik Mehta, CFO of Quipt, said.
“Quipt is an undisputed leader in in-home respiratory solutions for U.S. patients and is poised to continue expanding its services and geographic reach,” William Douglass, managing director and group head for CIT Healthcare Finance, said.
“We have worked to support Quipt’s financing needs in the past and are pleased to arrange this latest senior secured financing to enable them to continue successfully pursuing their ambitious business objectives,” Michael Coiley, managing director at CIT Healthcare Finance, said.
