Haven Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. is Recapitalized by BBH Capital Partners

Brentwood Capital Advisors Serves as Exclusive Financial Advisor to Haven Behavioral Healthcare, Inc.

Brentwood Capital Advisors (“BCA”) is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Haven Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. (“Haven” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of Thoma Cressey Bravo, in its recently completed recapitalization led by BBH Capital Partners (“BBHCP”).

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Haven is a leading provider of specialty behavioral healthcare services with a focus on geriatric acute psychiatric care. The Company operates six acute psychiatric facilities in five states, including geriatric and adult psychiatric units and partial hospitalization programs.

Michael Lindley, Haven’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are excited to partner with BBHCP to further support the Company’s growth. We have accomplished significant operating improvement during our partnership with the Cressey & Company team and look forward to the new growth opportunities that our partnership with BBHCP will provide. Brentwood Capital Advisors, our investment banking advisor in this transaction, helped us identify the best partner that shared our strategic vision. BCA’s strong industry relationships and behavioral healthcare expertise generated a process that yielded the best outcome for existing shareholders and the right partner for the Company going forward.”

“We were delighted to represent Haven in this recapitalization by BBHCP,” stated L.A. Galyon of Brentwood Capital Advisors. “With multiple opportunities to increase bed capacity at Haven’s existing facilities and the tailwinds of a significantly underserved acute psychiatric population, the Company is positioned for strong same-facility and de novo growth. BCA has had longstanding relationships with Mr. Lindley and his team and were pleased to serve as the Company’s financial advisor. Haven represents an important transaction in building upon BCA’s leadership position in behavioral health investment banking, which now includes ten transactions in this sector.”

Brentwood Capital Partners, L.P. II (“BCP II”) co-invested alongside BBHCP in the transaction. BCP II is a $42.2 million private equity fund affiliated with Brentwood Capital Advisors.
