September 6, 2022

Calex served as the exclusive financial advisor to Charlesbank

Charlesbank Capital Partners, a middle-market private investment firm, has acquired Action Behavior Centers (ABC), a leading provider of personalized therapy for children with autism. Founded as a single center in Austin, TX, in 2016, ABC currently employs approximately 400 graduate-level clinicians and operates more than 100 centers across Texas, Colorado, Arizona and Illinois. ABC uses center-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment, which is widely considered the gold standard in autism treatment by payors and clinicians, with the goal of expanding their potential and improving their quality of life. ABA helps children ages 2-14 years old reduce symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), such as self-harm and aggression.

Charlesbank’s investment is a culmination of a multi-year evaluation of many ABA providers. Their diligence validated ABC’s position as a leading ABA provider with strong clinical outcomes, a unique culture that supports clinician retention, and a data-driven management team. Charlesbank’s investment will enable the company to add centers in both new and existing geographies to meet increasing patient demand while maintaining strong clinical outcomes. Calex Partners, LLC served as the exclusive financial advisor to Charlesbank.
