Healthcare M&A Expecting Uptick in Q4

Health-Care Transactions Update: August 

(from BNA) 

Sept. 21— Health-care transactions activity is expected to pick up in the fourth quarter following a bit of a slow down over the summer months, attorneys who advise clients on deals told Bloomberg BNA.

It wasn't a surprise that the summer months had a lower volume of closed deals, as shown in the August list, Gary W. Herschman, of Epstein Becker Green in Newark, N.J., said. Those months traditionally are slower, Paul A. Gomez, of Epstein Becker Green in Los Angeles said.

Both advisers expect transactional activity to be more robust in October, November and December, because of a large number of deals that are in the “pipeline” and targeted to close before year-end.
