London, 11 October 2022 – Stanley Capital Partners (SCP) has exited its portfolio company Noden Pharma DAC (Noden Pharma) to a leading European business in the specialist pharmaceutical sector.

Headquartered in Dublin, Noden Pharma is a global speciality pharmaceutical company focused on the manufacturing of prescription medicines across a variety of cardiovascular treatments for patients who are intolerant to mainstream treatments.

Having originated the investment using its deep sector research into the European pharmaceutical industry, SCP helped the management team build a platform capable of inorganic and organic growth, whilst improving operational efficiency, improving cash flow, and successfully securing an ongoing API source which resulted in a strong return for SCP and its investors in a short period.

SCP exits the business having achieved a COC of 6.7x and an IRR of 151%. The sale of Noden Pharma marks the first exit since SCP was formed.

SCP Founding Partner, Simon Cottle: 

We used our research to both originate Noden and create value in the business enabling them to transform the business from a subsidiary into a successful ongoing platform which resulted in a successful exit through our joint efforts in transforming the business.

Patrick Hargutt, SCP Founding Partner: 

We’re proud to have supported the growth of Noden Pharma and its team globally.
