ABS Capital – a leading growth equity firm with more than three decades of experience scaling software and tech-enabled B2B businesses – announced the completion of a GP-led secondary transaction based around two of its portfolio companies: LabConnect and Viventium Software. The deal supports both companies’ significant continued growth opportunities, providing additional time and capital for growth initiatives while offering liquidity to existing limited partners. And ABS fund investors were provided a choice to receive liquidity or continue their investment. The deal is capitalized by a consortium of new and existing ABS investors – who subscribed to a new partnership managed and controlled by ABS. Kline Hill Partners and Five Arrows led this deal. LabConnect offers global central laboratory services, including routine and esoteric laboratory testing, kit building, sample management and tracking, storage, and scientific support services for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and clinical research organizations (CRO).
