Regatta Medical to Support Growth of Market-Leader in Micromanufacturing for the Life Sciences

NASHUA, N.H., Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Resonetics announced today that Regatta Medical has made a strategic investment

This platform enables the company to work with its customers across a wide range of interventional products and medical device segments, including neurovascular, diabetes, structural heart and other interventional specialties.

Dave Finley, Managing Director at Sverica, said "Resonetics has been a very successful growth story for Sverica's business-builder model across our High-Value Industrial and Healthcare verticals.  We were very pleased to extend the relationship with Chip Hance, Tom Burns and the Resonetics team, and to work with GTCR and the resources they will bring to bear to continue to grow and scale the company."

"GTCR has an impressive track record, with nearly 40 years of successful investing in healthcare companies," said Tom Burns, adding that "The Regatta Medical team are highly regarded industry veterans in the medical device industry and we look forward to leveraging their expertise in the next phase of our growth."

"Resonetics is a leader in laser micro-manufacturing and we will be collaborating with Tom and the Resonetics team to drive significant organic and acquisition-based growth in the near-term," said Chip Hance.

"We are excited to partner with Chip, Tom, and the management team to continue to build Resonetics," said GTCR Managing Director, Sean Cunningham. "Resonetics is an excellent platform, fabricating high-quality medical devices with innovative laser technology. We look forward to supporting the company's growth plans, including both investments in new technology and strategic follow-on acquisitions."
