Retail Healthcare On M&A Shoping List


Why private equity firms like veterinarians, opthamologists and dentists

(from Mergers&Acquisitions)


The healthcare industry remains a very hot place for investment. The U.S. healthcare M&A market began 2018 with almost $39 billion worth of deals announced in January — the strongest start in over a decade, according to Morgan Stanley. Many of the healthcare companies garnering attention from strategic acquirers and private equity firms have a few things in common: they are in subsectors where there is room for consolidation; they take pressure off hospitals; and most aim to give patients more specialized treatment, which is believed to lower the cost of care and improve outcomes.
