Healthcare Deals Continue, But Preparation Is More Important Than Ever

By  :

As we head into the homestretch of 2018, Intrepid’s Healthcare Group is happy to share with you some of the deals and trends drawing our attention amid a crowded M&A landscape. Even though healthcare transaction activity is progressing at a feverish pace, and valuations are at record-setting levels, we have noted that buyers and investors are becoming increasingly diligent in identifying specific areas in which they are willing to make valuation-stretching deals.

This past September, Intrepid led a dynamic panel discussion about “Opportunities and Pitfalls in Healthcare M&A”. The discussion focused on carefully managing your M&A decision-making process to drive success in a constantly changing healthcare sector.

Clearly the volume of healthcare M&A activity continues to impress, and we shall cover in this issue a handful of newsworthy items from Q3’18. However, we also want to offer a deeper dive analysis into a critical factor in improving a transaction’s likelihood of success: getting your financial house in order with the right team. We outline what healthcare providers should seek when hiring senior financial leadership, especially if they are contemplating a near-term M&A event.
