Stout Advises Retina Vitreous Associates on Sale to CEI Vision Partners

January 15, 2019

Stout announced today that its client, Retina Vitreous Associates, Inc. (RVA), has been acquired by CEI Vision Partners (CVP), a portfolio company of Revelstoke Capital Partners, a private equity firm based in Denver. Stout served as exclusive financial advisor to RVA in connection with this transaction.

RVA is a leading retinal ophthalmology practice providing advanced vitreoretinal surgical treatment and care with 10 locations throughout Ohio.

“John Calcagnini and his associates at Stout guided us through the complex process of a merger with an impressive mix of insight, guidance, and industry understanding,” said Dr. Nicholas Leonardy, physician and past president of RVA. “It was a productive partnership that allowed our physicians to remain focused on delivering top-quality patient care while Stout drove a process that maximized value for our business. RVA is thrilled to join with other top-notch practices under the CVP banner to build upon our mutual traditions of excellence in patient care. Together, our existing office locations now reach more than 60% of Ohio residents and will serve as a solid base for future growth.”

“Dr. Leonardy and his colleagues at RVA were a pleasure to work with,” said John Calcagnini, Managing Director at Stout. “The practice is composed of consummate professionals who have built a fantastic reputation with patients in their local markets. We hope to collaborate with them and the CEI team again in the future as we anticipate they will prosper across Ohio.”

Stout’s Sidarth Balaji and Jack Kedroski assisted in executing the deal.

Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP served as the legal advisor and deal counsel to RVA.
