Inflexion sells Pharmaspectra to IQVIA for USD 100m
Private equity firm Inflexion has sold medical data disseminator Pharmaspectra to US-listed health information company IQVIA, generating a 25% IRR.
The deal was valued at USD 100m, according to a source familiar with the situation.
The GP said it increased the company's client base by 160% over three years by investing in sales, marketing and client services. Inflexion added that it also supported market entry into China and the build-out of the team in India.
Inflexion acquired Pharmaspectra in 2019 via Enterprise Fund IV, which has been fully deployed since the end of that year. The fund invested tickets of GBP 10m-GBP 20m.
The exit is Inflexion's fourth from that fund, following Goals Soccer Centre, Halo Technology, and Virgin Experience Days.
Inflexion has made nine exits to date in 2022 with a combined valuation of GBP 2.5bn, it said in a statement.
The GP closed its latest enterprise fund Fund V in May 2019 at GBP 400m.
