allied 100 nf1Ridgemont Equity Partners has acquired Allied 100, a provider of automated external defibrillator products and services, from Thompson Street Capital Partners which acquired the company in May 2012.

scott poole nf1“It’s a pretty remarkable story,” said Scott Poole, Partner at Ridgemont.  “Allied was founded in 2002 by Jon Dobbs and Ken Raupach, healthcare professionals who saw the need for enhanced emergency response solutions.  With 350,000 people dying every year from sudden cardiac arrest, they saw an enormous opportunity to save lives, increase workplace safety and create safer communities through the distribution of AEDs.  Twelve years later, Allied-sold AEDs have saved hundreds of lives.”

Ridgemont Equity Partners (formerly Banc of America Capital Investors) focuses on middle market buyout and growth equity investments of $25 million to $100 million. The firm invests in the following sectors: basic industries and services; energy; healthcare; and telecommunications/media/technology. Ridgemont Equity Partners is headquartered in Charlotte, NC (www.ridgemontep.com).

Financing for the transaction was provided by BMO Harris Bank, GE Capital Healthcare Financial Services and Fidus Investment Corporation (www.fdus.com).

Middle-market investment bank BlackArch Partners (www.blackarchpartners.com) was the exclusive financial advisor to Allied 100.
