The Hampleton team members have many years of experience advising companies in health services, medical technology, and pharmaceutical industries.

We have worked for and closed transactions with companies such as Blue Shield, Certara, FBGS, Greenlight, Neoteryx and SAGlobal.
Hampleton recently guided the shareholders of Berlin-based BaseCase, creators of a data visualisation SaaS platform, in the sale of their company to the New Jersey-headquartered global leader in regulatory science, Certara, an EQT portfolio company. Bringing together a niche technology vendor and the right buyer with a full suite of synergistic products and services requires in-depth industry knowledge and experience. The BaseCase / Certara transaction highlights Hampleton’s understanding, creativity and capabilities in finding the best matches in healthtech, enterprise software and SaaS.
The Sale of BaseCase to Certara
Hampleton Partners advised on the sale of Germany’s BaseCase data visualisation software as a service (SaaS) company to US-based Certara, the global leader in model-informed drug development and regulatory science. BaseCase‘s interactive platform improves how life science companies communicate and present that value, whether to C-suite executives, physicians or healthcare providers.
By integrating content creation with sales enablement, it allows users to quickly create and personalize a visual value proposition around a drug or device’s ROI and business case.

Healthtech Report 1H2019
In the healthtech sector, numerous technologies were targeted by acquirers in 2018: blockchain, data storage, artificial intelligence and patient information management software all garnered keen interest, as did health-specific IT services and medical hardware. Meanwhile, in the age of ultra-connectedness at home or on-the-go, patient-oriented self-service technology continued to strike a note with acquirers.
How Tech is Solving the Problems of an Ageing Population
In the UK, 18.2% of the population is currently aged 65 years or over, compared to 15.9% in 2017 and a predicted 20.7% by 2027. This significant demographic shift is affecting developed and developing countries alike.
While this is in many ways something to celebrate, as people are living longer due to improved healthcare, it brings associated problems which are likely to worsen over time.
