Latticework Capital Management acquires Catalina Research Institute

Latticework Capital Management (LCM), a Dallas-based private equity firm focused exclusively on healthcare control investments in the lower middle market, has formed American Clinical Research Services Holdings (ACRS) following its acquisition of the Catalina Research Institute (CRI).

Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

CRI is an independent clinical trials centre focussed on  high complexity trials across non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes and other metabolic diseases as well as central nervous system. The acquisition of CRI by ACRS is the first of what is expected to be multiple investments in the broader site management organisation (SMO) platform.

The partnership with LCM and ACRS will allow CRI to expand and enhance its value proposition as a full-service provider of trial needs from Phase I through drug commercialisation.

LCM has completed more than 75 transactions across a diverse array of healthcare subsectors. The firm employs a “top down” approach to investing, identifying industry themes and trends and focusing on areas of growth and opportunity.
