Finding the right partner to support growth aspirations

The challenge
MAP, a UK-based market access consultant to the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors, needed a strategic investment partner to help deliver the next stage of its growth.
The solution
We worked closely with shareholders and management to develop a transaction strategy, leading to the sale of a majority stake to a specialist healthcare, data and tech investor.
The results
Kester Capital’s backing means MAP can now broaden its offering, expand into new territories, and target acquisitions to accelerate the growth of its proprietary digital platform.
