A portfolio company of Kayne Partners’ Sabrina Chaudhury is set to become part of a publicly traded digital health care company that will be valued at more than $1 billion. Cloudbreak Health, LLC, which Kayne Anderson and Columbia Partners Private Capital backed, has agreed to be acquired by GigCapital2.

GigCapital2 is also merging with UpHealth Holdings, Inc., a digital health care provider.

Earlier this year, another company that Sabrina worked with, 4C Insights, Inc., was acquired by Mediaocean. Sabrina, a vice president, joined Kayne Partners last year from Goldman Sachs’ private equity group. In addition to Cloudbreak, Sabrina is working with such other Kayne portfolio companies as Careworx, CreatorIQ, FreightWaves, Proficio, rfXcel, and Source Intelligence.
