TripleTree, LLC, a strategic advisor and merchant bank serving
innovative companies in healthcare, is pleased to announce that its
client, Caravel Autism Health ("Caravel" or the "Company"), a leading
provider of Applied Behavioral Analysis ("ABA") therapy to children on
the autism spectrum has received a strategic investment by Frazier
Healthcare Partners.

The investment will allow Caravel to pursue geographic expansion and
additional treatment models to serve the needs of more children and
their families. It will also support the Company's focus on clinical
excellence and best-outcomes using ABA therapy. Finally, the additional
investment in technology initiatives will enhance quality, outcome data
tracking and efficiency in delivery of autism treatment.

"Frazier Healthcare Partners brings deep healthcare expertise that
aligns with our mission, values and strategic growth plan to provide ABA
therapy to children on the autism spectrum," said Caravel CEO Mike
Miller. "TripleTree's deep knowledge of the behavioral health sector and
their exceptional strategic advice over the last year were essential in
helping us extend our treatment to more families in Illinois, Wisconsin
and additional states."

"Caravel is on the forefront of clinical excellence in the field of
autism health, innovating standards of care through advances in quality
measurement, early intervention and family support," said Peter
Erickson, TripleTree Managing Director. "We are thrilled about the
Caravel and Frazier Healthcare Partners partnership, which positions the
Company for its next phase of growth in accelerating these initiatives."

"With an incidence of 1 in 59 children, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
is the fastest growing developmental disability, according to the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)," said Jon Hill,
TripleTree Senior Director. "Caravel has been a leader in creating
effective autism treatments, and the strategic investment by Frazier
Healthcare Partners allows them to enhance their capabilities in current
service areas while extending their reach to more families in new
geographies."

TripleTree acted as the exclusive strategic and financial advisor to
Caravel for this transaction.
