Audax Private Debt Provides Financing to Support Lightyear Capital’s Acquisition of PracticeTek

Audax Private Debt announced that, as Administrative Agent and Sole Arranger, it provided a unitranche credit facility to support the acquisition of PracticeTek (or the “Company”) by investment funds affiliated with Lightyear Capital, a New York-based private equity firm focused on financial services.

Headquartered in Knoxville, TN, PracticeTek provides more than 16,000 dental, orthodontic, chiropractic, optometry, dermatology, and other healthcare practices with best-in-class software solutions that help them acquire, engage, and bill their patients and manage their practices to grow faster. PracticeTek’s practice management capabilities allow providers to streamline and integrate processes and to make data-driven business decisions through actionable insights.

“With its high-quality solutions that enable better care, lower workloads for staff, and less overhead costs for providers, PracticeTek is uniquely positioned as a leading provider of largely cloud-based software solutions in a highly fragmented industry,” said Ryan Benedict, Managing Director at Audax Private Debt. “We are thrilled to work with the Lightyear Capital and PracticeTek teams, as we all look forward to a new chapter of growth for the Company.”

“Audax Private Debt has proven to be a trusted and reliable partner,” said Michal Petrzela, Managing Director at Lightyear Capital. “The Audax team provided financing certainty and we’re pleased to be working with them again as we continue to execute our growth objectives at PracticeTek.”
