Exclusive buy-side advisor to SDS Rx
Strategic Delivery Solutions (“SDS Rx” or the “Company”) is a healthcare focused supply chain solutions provider focused on the long-term care (“LTC”) the pharmacy market, specializing in the movement of pharmaceuticals from wholesale distributors to pharmacies and hospitals and from LTC pharmacies to facilities and patients.
Founded in 2009, SDS Rx was initially designed to target the pharmaceutical distribution sector and offer pharmaceutical distributors, pharmacies, labs and healthcare systems a combination of proven process, enhanced technology, and a local delivery network on a national scale. Building on that model, the Company has achieved consistent revenue growth, establishing a national footprint while setting the local benchmark for delivery accuracy and establishing itself as the undisputed thought leader in last mile healthcare delivery and logistics. With fresh capital through its financial partnership with HCI Equity Partners (“HCI”) in 2018, SDS Rx is now well positioned to accelerate its growth through a disciplined acquisition strategy and explore expansion opportunities into new healthcare markets.
G2 Capital Advisors, LLC (“G2”) served as the buy-side advisor to SDS Rx with respect to the Medical Delivery Services (“MDS”) acquisition. After serving as the Company’s financial advisor with HCI’s recapitalization of the business in 2018, G2 was a natural fit to support additional acquisition search activities within the healthcare logistics marketplace.
Like SDS Rx, MDS has an attractive, non-asset based business model, leveraging a broad network of independent contractors to deliver its freight. The acquisition of MDS brings SDS Rx into new geographies, builds density in existing geographies, and provides access to a new healthcare end market in radiopharmaceuticals.
CEO of SDS Rx, Drew Kronick said, “This acquisition is a perfect fit as we execute on our strategic growth initiative to grow complementary segments of the healthcare market. The radiopharmaceutical market is a large unique market that requires years of experience to service. MDS brings the people, the experience and the reputation which will allow us to continue to grow our market share in this important segment.”
Managing Partner of HCI, Doug McCormick said, “G2 brought invaluable industry connections and expertise that was critical to identifying the opportunity and achieving a successful outcome. We look forward to partnering with G2 to continue to execute on highly strategic M&A opportunities.”
“We are very excited for the future of MDS, as SDS Rx represents a unique acquirer, able to invest significantly in the organization and drive sustained long term growth” said Ben Wright, COO of G2. “We see significant opportunity for additional partnerships between SDS Rx and pharmaceutical logistics companies across the US.”
