An Affiliate of The Beekman Group Recapitalizes P&R Dental Strategies, A Premier Dental Insights Company
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Beekman Group is pleased to announce that an affiliate of Beekman Investment Partners IV (“Beekman”) has acquired P&R Dental Strategies (“P&R” or the “Company”), the premier dental insights company delivering customized, actionable business intelligence and claim review services to support a variety of dental industry stakeholders, alongside the P&R management team. Beekman’s investment will support P&R’s accelerated growth in existing and new markets.
Founded in 1996, P&R has become the market-leading provider of big data analytics for the dental industry. P&R utilizes multiple, proprietary data assets and advanced analytics to drive valuable insights for dental payers and suppliers. Beekman partnered with the existing P&R management team, who will continue to lead the growth of the business under Beekman’s ownership.
Paul T. Sheils, CEO of P&R, stated, “We are thrilled to have partnered with The Beekman Group. Their experience and track record within the dental services and business services sectors were clear differentiators as we evaluated equity partners. We look forward to partnering together to achieve our strategic growth plans.”
“We were extremely impressed with P&R’s unique leadership position in the dental market and look forward to partnering with Paul and the rest of the management team at P&R.” Andrew Brown, Managing Director of Beekman, added, “The Company’s proprietary databases and unique, high ROI solutions create a compelling value proposition for its customers. We will continue to support P&R’s technology innovation initiatives such as DentaQual®, the dental industry’s first objective quality assessment platform, its successful Pronto® smart claim selection platform, and the enhancement of P&R’s informatics products with artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.”
TripleTree, LLC acted as the exclusive financial advisor to P&R Dental Strategies for this transaction. P&R’s closing in late December capped off the busiest quarter in Beekman’s 18 year history with over half a billion dollars in middle-market transactions closed across its private equity funds including new investments, divestitures and dividend recapitalizations.
