Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client, MealTracker, headquartered in Hornell, New York, by MatrixCare, headquartered in Bloomington, Minnesota. The acquisition closed on October 5, 2015.

MealTracker® creates and supports dietary and nutritional menu planning software specifically designed for the long-term care market. They are a dedicated and nimble group that has a passion for solving food-service related problems, and are absolute fanatics about accessible and reliable customer service.

“MatrixCare has the winning vision and strategy to help long-term care providers deliver superior care and better outcomes,” said Robert Evans, President and CEO of MealTracker.

“We are thrilled for our employees and over 2,000 MealTracker customers to join the growing MatrixCare community.”

Managing Director Michael Goss led the Generational Equity deal team that advised MealTracker on the transaction. “MatrixCare is a leading EHR platform in the long-term healthcare space, and MealTracker was the perfect add-on to enrich MatrixCare’s platform with a robust dietary and nutritional SaaS module.”

“The principals on both sides of the table saw the value to their customers and the healthcare market, and worked together harmoniously to close a fantastic transaction for all involved,” stated Goss.

John Damgaard, MatrixCare President and CEO, commented, “MealTracker is widely recognized and respected as the gold standard for nutrition management in long-term care settings and serves a who’s-who of leading providers.”

“As our industry accelerates its migration to a fee-for-value system, the role of nutrition in providing superior care and better outcomes will be highlighted.”
