NEW YORK — One Equity Partners (“OEP”), a middle market private equity firm, today announced that it has completed an investment in React Health (“React Health” or “the Company”), a manufacturer and distributor of sleep therapy , respiratory therapy and disinfection products in North America. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
React Health, headquartered in Winter Haven, Fla., offers positive airway pressure (“PAP”) devices and supplies, sleep device masks, oxygen concentrators, and related disinfectant products. The Company’s products are used in helping treat long-term conditions such as Sleep Disordered Breathing (“SDB”) and chronic diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (“COPD”), that millions of people suffer from every day.
“OEP’s investment in React Health reflects a continued focus on the treatment and management of chronic and complex conditions in the home,” said Inna Etinberg, Principal, One Equity Partners. “Obstructive Sleep Apnea (“OSA”) is the most prevalent of the sleep breathing disorders and is highly correlated with other respiratory disorders such as COPD, which affects over 15 million Americans. We are proud to support React Health as they increase awareness for sleep disordered breathing and drive innovation that makes diagnosis and treatment of OSA and other respiratory disorders more affordable.”
The sleep and respiratory care market is growing as more resources are allocated toward improving patient outcomes, slowing chronic disease progression, reducing overall healthcare system costs and growth in out-of-hospital care settings.
“Partnering with OEP is the beginning of the next stage of growth for React Health,” said Tom Pontzius, President of React Health. “We are excited to leverage OEP’s expertise and relationships to expand our business and help more patients get diagnosed and needed therapies to better manage their chronic sleep disorders and respiratory conditions to improve their quality of life.”
