Brentwood Capital Advisors (“BCA”) is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Retina Consultants of Nevada (“RCN” or the “Company”) in its recently completed sale to Comprehensive EyeCare Partners (“CompEye”).

Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, RCN is an ophthalmology subspecialty practice that provides comprehensive retinal and vitreous care to patients across the southern Nevada and Utah markets.

“We are excited to partner with CompEye,” said Dr. Meher Yepremyan, RCN managing partner. “This partnership will allow us to expand our clinical footprint, attract and retain the best physicians in our industry and thrive in a value-based reimbursement environment. BCA, our exclusive investment banking advisor, played a critical role in positioning and defending forward-looking financial results and was instrumental in achieving an outcome that maximized shareholder value. BCA guided us through an extensive diligence process and helped us find an optimal partner with a shared vision for providing clinical excellence.”
