Genstar Capital exits Evolution1 in $532.5m deal


wexxMid-market firm Genstar Capital has exited its investment in consumer directed health (CDH) payments specialist Evolution1, which was sold to Wex for $532.5m.

The company’s technology enables users to spend electronically through prepaid funds in CDH accounts.

Genstar principal Eli Weiss said, “During Genstar’s ownership, Evolution1 developed and expanded its solutions to achieve strong organic growth.

“The company today serves more than 10 million consumers and more than 90,000 employer groups.

“The platform is poised to continue building on this momentum, and we are pleased to have worked with this talented senior management team to dramatically grow this business.”

Genstar bought into the business alongside fellow buyout house Bain Capital in 2007. During the holding period, the company saw its revenue and EBITDA more than double.
