Volume Down, Values Up
Based on available data, Q3 2016 M&A activity in the US healthcare services industry saw a decline in deal volume and an increase in deal values when compared to Q2 2016. Overall YTD M&A activity in this sector remains frothy and on-par with the record breaking numbers that were seen in 2015. However, with the US presidential elections in the rearview mirror and president elect Trump promising as part of his campaign platform to repeal and replace “Obamacare”, the healthcare services industry could be headed into rough waters that could dampen activity as we look to close out Q4 2016 and into 2017.
