)-- Activus Solutions, LLC, a strategic consulting and services firm solely focused on helping Life Science manufacturers address the challenges of their contract management operations, today announced the acquisition of substantially all assets of Government Pricing Specialists, LLC (“GPS”), a consultancy that partners with life science manufacturers to ensure compliance with the various government healthcare programs.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to bring the robust talent and industry knowledge of the GPS team into the Activus family,” stated John Olson and John Taurozzi, Managing Partners of Activus Solutions in a joint statement. “We now round out the offerings to our current clients, and can provide the GPS client base with the ability to grow with us through our full service offerings. As part of this initiative, we are taking the opportunity to align our mutual services into three operating units – Activus GPS for our government pricing and Medicaid services, Activus CCS to handle our traditional commercial contract offerings, and Activus BPO, our rapidly growing business process outsourcing unit that provides chargeback, managed care, and Medicaid claims processing services.”
“This acquisition will allow for two well established companies within the industry to align and provide comprehensive high value services across the entire contract management spectrum,” continued John Olson. “We are extremely happy to announce that all members of GPS including Katie Lapins, Founder of GPS, will remain on board. Katie will serve as part of the executive team, and will play a key role in continuing the growth of the combined company.”
“We are very excited to join Activus to grow our offerings in a way that complements our existing services. GPS’ team members will continue their efforts with existing clients who will now have the tremendous opportunity to take advantage of the services and offerings that Activus provides,” stated Katie Lapins. “I am excited about working with our clients and the road ahead and believe we will continue to be the gold standard in the government pricing space.”
“With this strategic acquisition, we can offer additional services that expand upon our existing consultancy, systems implementation, and business process outsourcing offerings,” stated Chris Seichter, Partner and Director of Sales and Marketing. “Over the coming weeks, we will work together with our combined client base to introduce our exciting new offerings.”
