Mansa Capital Management, LLC, a private equity firm specializing in growth equity investments in healthcare companies in the post healthcare reform environment, announced it has invested $3.5M in E4 Health, Inc. Mansa Capital led the second round investment in E4 Health and will guide the growth phase with management, and investment partner, Kinderhook Industries, LLC. Mansa Capital Managing Partner and CIO, Ruben Jose King-Shaw Jr., has been a member of the board of directors at E4 Health since Kinderhook’s initial investment in October 2011. This second round enabled E4 Health’s acquisition of Corporate Family Network (CFN) in December 2012.
“E4 Health exemplifies the kind of companies we’re interested in growing specifically to address the post-reform healthcare needs of Hispanic and Urban Populations,” said King-Shaw Jr. “This new healthcare setting requires culturally-sensitive outreach, education and preventative care to increase efficiency while promoting health and positive outcomes. We see great potential in E4 to lead in this area with its innovative technology and expanded reach through acquisition of CFN.”

Mansa will work closely with E4 Health to guide its progress and on-time achievement of growth goals. The firm has been tracking E4 since Kinderhook’s initial investment and contributed to its development through board membership. With strong revenues, customer-base and management in place, E4 enters its growth phase and looks to build on its best-in-class technology.
“The second round investment led by Mansa enabled the acquisition of CFN, which allows us to provide service to over 600,000 eligible employees plus family members, and adds the top caliber resources and broad expertise of a national EAP, furthering our emergence as the premier provider of integrated PHM, Wellness, and EAP solutions and tailored, outcomes-based service delivery. As we take these critical next steps, we’re pleased to have Mansa’s expertise and guidance,” said Bill Mulcahy, E4 Health CEO.
E4 Health is a leading provider of employee assistance programs (EAP) and behavioral health risk management programs. The company’s health management solution, LifeMap, provides best-in-class EAP, Behavioral Health and Wellness services on a single platform.
