Vistara Growth Leads US$25M Financing for VALD

Portfolio News

We’re proud to announce our support of VALD, a global health tech company, by leading a $25 million capital raise alongside existing investor Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC).

VALD’s human measurement technology – delivered via an integrated hardware and software platform – is used almost ubiquitously among pro sports teams to monitor the performance and manage injuries of the world’s highest paid athletes.  More recently, it has been rapidly adopted by health professionals to help detect and rehabilitate a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions for patients of all ages and abilities.

Despite peak capital market conditions in 2021, VALD’s co-founders chose not to pursue its planned IPO with the belief that remaining private would better serve their long-term vision.  During 2022, the Company sought an investment partner who could fund its organic growth and M&A ambitions, provide liquidity to dedicated pre-IPO funds no longer aligned with the Company’s capital strategy, and manage dilution to ensure the founders retained significant ownership stakes and operational control.  We worked collaboratively to tailor a creative solution to achieve these varied growth capital use cases, and are thrilled to partner with Laurie Malone, Sam James, and the VALD team in their mission to improve outcomes for MSK professionals and their patients.
