Aurora Capital Partners Completes Acquisition of Sharps Compliance Corp.

Aurora Capital Partners, a leading middle-market private equity firm, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Sharps Compliance Corp. (“Sharps” or the “Company”), a full-service national provider of comprehensive waste management solutions including medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous waste.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, and founded in 1992, Sharps is a leading provider of medical waste solutions, including both mail-back and route-based collection services. The Company’s strong management team has overseen consistent growth over multiple decades, driven by repeat business and a long-term focus on exceptional customer service. Additionally, Sharps developed and manages a proprietary nationwide solution for proper handling of unused medication, which has significantly expanded its customer base and reach in the past several years.

“We are excited to add Sharps’ industry-leading solutions to our medical waste platform,” said Andrew Wilson, Partner at Aurora Capital Partners. “In addition to creating the industry’s leading mail-back solution and a growing route-based service, the Company’s management team was early to identify the need for reliable, controlled disposal of unused medication, establishing Sharps as a pioneer in the sector. We look forward to partnering with the team to capitalize on our platform and selectively pursue add-on acquisitions.”

“Aurora Capital Partners has a proven history of partnering with industry leaders to accelerate growth across business lines, and we are honored to work with them moving forward,” said Pat Mulloy, Chief Executive Officer of Sharps. “I am confident that their understanding of the medical waste services market, combined with their alignment with our customer-first approach, will allow us to build on our recent growth, expand our customer base and further enhance our innovative solutions offerings.”

“Following our partnerships with Restaurant Technologies, VLS Environmental Solutions and PSC Group, Sharps represents the addition of another high-quality Business Services platform to the Aurora program,” said Matthew Laycock, Partner at Aurora.

As previously announced on August 22, 2022, a total of 16,830,657 Shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn from Aurora’s tender offer, representing approximately 82% of the number of Shares that were issued and outstanding as of the Expiration Date on a fully diluted basis.  As a result of the completion of the merger, Sharps has ceased trading on the NASDAQ, effective August 23, 2022, and has become a privately-held company.

The transaction marks the fifth Aurora Capital Partners investment specifically within the medical waste management space and follows a number of recent Aurora investments within the broader Business Services sector.

Stifel served as exclusive financial advisor and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP served as legal advisor to Aurora Capital Partners.  Raymond James & Associates, Inc. acted as financial advisor and Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP acted as legal advisor to Sharps. Antares arranged the debt financing for the transaction.
