US-based healthcare technology company Cotiviti has signed a definitive agreement for its recapitalisation with affiliates of Veritas Capital and investment funds managed by KKR.

Veritas Capital, Cotiviti’s long-standing partner, and KKR will now be co-sponsors and have equal ownership stakes in the health technology business.

The deal is due to be finalised in the second quarter of this year subject to receiving regulatory approvals.

Veritas Capital and KKR will each make an investment to fuel Cotiviti’s commercial expansion, innovation, technology opportunities and new product development.

KKR will make its investment primarily through its North America Fund XIII, while Veritas will use its Veritas Fund VIII for its investment.

Veritas CEO and managing partner Ramzi Musallam said: “Over the course of our investment, Veritas partnered with Cotiviti to drive a period of sustained transformative growth both organically and through strategic acquisitions, building a mission critical suite of solutions that have helped to reshape the economics of healthcare.
