Breakwater Management Provides Unitranche Facility to Consensus Orthopedics, Inc.

Growth-capital fund increases investment in California-based portfolio company following strong, consistent growth.

LOS ANGELES, JUNE 2013 – Breakwater Management, LP (“Breakwater”) is pleased to announce the closing of a $7.75 million unitranche facility to Consensus Orthopedics, Inc. (“Consensus”), to refinance the company’s existing bank facility and provide additional growth capital. The new facility consisted of both a revolving working capital line of credit and term loan to support Consensus’s domestic and international market expansion.

Founded in 1992, Consensus designs, manufactures, and distributes high-quality reconstructive total joint implants for the hip and knee. Headquartered in El Dorado Hills, CA, the company sells its products throughout North America, Western Europe, Turkey, China, Japan, and Australia.

“We are very excited to continue working in partnership with the professionals at Breakwater,” said Colleen Gray, CEO at Consensus. “Breakwater has consistently demonstrated its ability to provide flexible capital as our needs have changed throughout these growth years. The unitranche facility was the perfect financing solution to enable us to expand the reach of our products worldwide. We look forward to executing our business plan with the continued support of Breakwater.”

“Consensus has demonstrated strong, expansive growth throughout the past four years,” said Saif Mansour, Managing Partner at Breakwater. “We are delighted to increase our investment in Consensus and to continue supporting Colleen and her highly experienced management team, which has an excellent track-record of implementing new growth initiatives, optimizing cost structures, and entering new markets.”

Dear friends,

It is with profound sadness that we relay news of the recent death of our partner Saif Mansour. Saif passed away suddenly on October 27th due to an undiagnosed heart condition.

Saif founded Breakwater in 2009 as a young entrepreneur, with the vision of creating an investment firm that reflected his commitment to excellence, integrity, and long-term partnership. He was an incredibly intelligent, energetic, kind, and charismatic person, and a great connector of people who brought joy to everyone who knew him. He was a talented investor, a wonderful friend, and a natural leader.

Saif’s passion for Breakwater was surpassed only by his enormous love for his wife and their two young children. We grieve with them and extend our deepest sympathies to all of his family and friends.

We are heartbroken by this terrible loss but will honor Saif’s memory by continuing to build a firm that reflects his entrepreneurial spirit and core values. May his memory be a blessing to us all.

Sincerely,
The Breakwater Family
