PRESS RELEASE: Loop and PI’s Exclusive Relationship for Non-Recourse Financing to Make One-Room Proton Facilities

Chicago—October 19, 2015—Loop Capital has teamed with Proton International to support and promote the construction, development, and advancement of one-room proton therapy centers. An innovative, risk-reducing cancer treatment, proton therapy is positioned and designed to be one of the most technologically advanced methods of treating cancerous tumors. Its laser-sharp precision delivers protons of high-level radiation exactly where it is needed, cutting down on radiation exposure to vital organs in and around the cancerous location.

Principles of Proton International (PI) have spent the past two decades successfully implementing nearly one dozen specialized centers around the nation, which offer this leading-edge treatment. Now, through its relationship with Loop Capital, an investment banking, brokerage and advisory firm, PI is making it easier and more affordable for hospitals, oncologists and other medical professionals to penetrate the proton market. Medical providers can offer top-of-the-line treatment to cancer patients with one-room centers in a much more convenient way through non-recourse financing structures. Clinical partners who leverage the combined expertise of PI and Loop Capital benefit from having a knowledgeable and experienced team backing and supporting their proton center project.

Instead of building mega centers, which often take years to construct and $100-200 million in capital and financing to secure, PI’s one-room center mitigates financial risks with the addition of a single room to a pre-existing radiation oncology clinic, or through transforming existing property to a proton therapy center. By offering a turnkey solution model with financing solution, backed by future revenue, PI and Loop Capital make proton therapy more accessible to medical providers and healthcare systems across the nation.
