Intrepid’s Healthcare Group continues to see a high volume of consolidation activity across all segments of healthcare. An extraordinary breadth of strategic acquirers and financial sponsors are seeking M&A targets to partner with and expand through add-on acquisitions and organic growth initiatives. The Intrepid team is responding to this demand, actively managing numerous healthcare engagements nationally, with areas of focus spanning from physician practice management to genetic testing innovators. As the volume of activity in this sector continues to grow, Intrepid is expanding its own healthcare investments, adding to our team our newest Associate, Joseph Wisniewski.
Joe is an experienced healthcare services investment banker who has deep experience advising on consolidation activity within the physician practice management sector. One of the many areas that Joe has been closely watching is the orthopedics and sports medicine physician specialty. While many healthcare niches have experienced waves of consolidation in the past few years, orthopedics and sports medicine, in particular, have undergone an unusually fast increase in the volume of private equity platform investments over the last year.
In the following article, we outline some of the reasons why orthopedics is quickly becoming one of the industry’s most exciting areas of focus. We also highlight robust activity in several sectors, including revenue cycle services, genetics, pathology, eyecare, autism services and pharma outsourcing services. Each of these dynamic niches has unique opportunities driving M&A and investment activity.
We are excited to race to a successful conclusion of 2019! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions about the sectors covered in our industry report.
