Based in Franklin, M*Modal provides clinical documentation services and speech understanding solutions for health care. It was known as MedQuist Holdings until January.

Investment funds affiliated with S.A.C. Private Capital Group LLC — the company's largest shareholder owning nearly a third of M(asterisk)Modal — have agreed to tender their shares into the offer.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter.
