NEW YORK -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Only one year after providing capital to fund growth in a healthcare information technology company, Praesidian Capital, along with a co-investor Kemper Insurance, has invested an additional $8.3 million in Etransmedia Technology, Inc. (“Etransmedia”). Praesidian is a leading provider of senior and subordinated capital for small and mid-sized businesses.

“Praesidian’s initial investment a year ago of $16.0 million in subordinated debt allowed us to finance growth and refinance existing debt,” confirmed Etransmedia Chairman and Co-Founder Vikash Agrawal. “Since then, we have succeeded in expanding our geographic footprint and customer base while maintaining high levels of customer service. This new funding will further support acquisitions that will follow these objectives and keep Etransmedia in the forefront of healthcare technology companies.”
