San Francisco (May 10, 2021) – Valuation Research Corporation (VRC), a leading global provider of independent valuation support and advisory services, today announced the completion of two solvency opinions in connection with the recapitalization of private equity-backed technology companies. VRC was engaged to provide solvency opinions by the board of VPay, a healthcare-oriented digital payments provider, and by Virgin Pulse, which designs technology that promotes healthy lifestyles among employees. “We are honored that VRC was selected by stakeholders at these two progressive technology companies to handle this important work,” said VRC Co-CEO Justin Johnson. “As the economy continues to grow, private equity deal activity is definitely picking up. But the commercial terrain has shifted quite a bit in the wake of the pandemic, so it’s often imperative for organizations to find expert third-party partners to provide solvency and fairness opinions as they undertake strategic transactions.”
Virgin Pulse was recapitalized by Marlin Equity Partners, while the VPay recapitalization was led by FTV Capital.
