Hampleton advised 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.
