Recently Highland Capital Management and its founder James Dondero increase their position with K2M group holdings. This recent transaction has enabled Highland Capital to add yet another investment position in the firms’s portfolio. Since Highland Capital is always looking to acquire more ownership stakes along with new clients, the firm believed that getting a more lucrative position with K2M Holdings would help it achieve its goal of increasing its number of investment positions. Another reason why Highland Capital has decided to increase its investment position with K2M Holdings is because it is in the lucrative and prosperous medical/healthcare industry. As a result it will enable the firm to manage lucrative investment holdings as well as help the firm make more money.
