01/06/2021 | 07:03am EDT

SK Capital Partners LP, a private investment firm focused on the specialty materials, chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors, today announced that funds it advises have signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Blow-Fill-Seal ("BFS") Sterile Contract Development and Manufacturing Business (the “Business”) from Catalent Pharma Solutions, LLC. The acquisition of the Business, which will operate as a new independent company, is expected to close in April of 2021.

We are excited about the opportunity to partner with the management and employees of the Business to create a focused and thriving independent company dedicated to providing its customers with the highest levels of service.”

“Divesting our BFS manufacturing business will allow us to concentrate on our growing core activities of developing oral, inhaled and biologic drugs with customers, as well as rapidly extending our technological portfolio of new, emerging modalities, including cell and gene therapies,” commented Jonathan Arnold, President, Oral and Specialty Delivery at Catalent. He added, “We would like to thank everyone at the Woodstock facility for their dedication and commitment to Catalent in their efforts to support the launch and supply of many essential drugs, and I am sure they will continue to thrive under the new ownership, whose team has extensive experience investing into and growing pharmaceutical businesses.”

Committed debt financing was provided by Cerberus Business Finance, LLC. Mizuho Securities served as financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP acted as legal counsel to SK Capital.
