RCP Advisors Names Primus Capital’s Harmony Healthcare IT Partnership 2023 Deal of the Year

March 21, 2024 – Primus Capital (“Primus” or the “Firm”) is a growth-oriented lower middle market private equity firm focused on investing in the healthcare, software, and technology-enabled services verticals. Primus was selected as RCP Advisors’ Deal of the Year following its acquisition, development, and subsequent sale of Harmony Healthcare IT (the “Company”), which demonstrated extraordinary results.

After a thorough review of more than 80 realization events across our various portfolios in 2023, we selected Primus’ investment in Harmony Healthcare IT as our Deal of the Year because we believe it represents the very best of what small buyouts can produce for all stakeholders: adding value to portfolio companies by providing financial and human capital, as well as equity incentives to management to professionalize and institutionalize the business, growing it rapidly, enhancing the business’ value proposition for its customers through investments in product development and operations, and then selling it upstream to a larger financial or strategic buyer for the benefit of management/employees, limited partners, and other shareholders.

RCP is an investor in several funds sponsored by Primus. The Firm’s sector-focused approach to investing, which focuses on professionalizing founder-owned companies while supporting their growth trajectory through value-added engagement, has made them successful. RCP believes that Primus’ consistent strategy application and thoughtful investment approach has made Primus one of the premier firms in the lower middle market.
