The growth capital will be used to meet rapid growth requirements of the company’s expanding health care services business.
DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, April 23, 2019 —Tellus, a leading provider of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) technology solutions, announced today that it has closed a transaction with Carroll Capital LLC and additional investors in a $9 million Series B growth capital financing. The proceeds will be used to fuel its contracts from States, Managed Care Organizations (Payers) and thousands of providers as Tellus expands its Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) business nationally.
The partners in the capital raise of just over $9 million were identified by Tellus’ exclusive financial and strategic advisor, Bailey Southwell & Co.
CIBC Bank USA provided the debt capital financing through its CIBC Innovation Banking team.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Tellus and to support its continued growth with funding at a pivotal stage in its development as a leading EVV technology provider,” said Brian F. Carroll, Managing Partner of Carroll Capital LLC, the lead investor in the round.
“We believe this successful capital round accurately reflects our past performance as we scale our EVV technology platform across the country,” said Tellus CEO Brad Levine. “Carroll Capital, CIBC and health industry strategist Bailey Southwell & Co. took a collaborative approach to help us meet our goals, providing an efficient mix of debt and equity financing that satisfies our business needs and rapid growth trajectory.”
