Denver, CO – Revelstoke Capital Partners (“Revelstoke”), a Denver-based private equity firm, announced today that its portfolio company Upstream Rehabilitation Inc. together with certain of its affiliates (“Upstream”) has completed the acquisition of Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, LLC (“DPTI”). Certain DPTI shareholders, including Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division, rolled over a portion of their proceeds in exchange for a minority ownership stake in Upstream. In addition to the DPTI transaction, Upstream announced that it has completed four additional add-on acquisitions: Personal Injury Network Northwest (Washington), Rocky Mountain Sport and Spine (Colorado), Lincoln City Physical Therapy (Oregon) and Southern Physical Therapy (Tennessee).
“Upstream and DPTI share similar cultures and a strong commitment to clinical excellence and compliance. We see a tremendous opportunity to combine the strengths and capabilities of both companies, while maintaining the portfolio of brands from each, to continue to grow and be the provider and employer of choice in the industry,” said David Van Name, CEO and founder of Upstream.
“Since we invested in Upstream in December 2015, the company has nearly tripled in size driven by above-market same-clinic growth, approximately 100 de novo clinic openings and 12 add-on acquisitions. We have enjoyed a strong partnership with the Upstream management team and look forward to working with them on this transformative acquisition,” said Simon Bachleda, Managing Partner at Revelstoke.
“With the DPTI transaction, Upstream will be the fourth-largest outpatient physical therapy provider in the U.S. with over 550 clinics across 27 states and a significant presence in the Southeast,” said Andrew Welch, Managing Director at Revelstoke.
Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. acted as financial advisor and Winston & Strawn LLP acted as legal counsel to Upstream. Harris Williams & Co. acted as financial advisor and Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP acted as legal counsel to DPTI.
