The next 18 to 24 months will likely see a titanic clash in Congress as the forces aligned for healthcare reform cross swords with those standing firm against it.

 

Which side prevails is anybody’s guess.  But one thing is certain from an investment prospective --if you’re a player in any of the hot industries working to rescue the most expensive healthcare infrastructure in the world--you’ll likely win no matter what.

Consider the New Heroes of Healthcare

  • Cost-Containment -- With certain sectors of healthcare increasing 10%-20% yearly, firms that step in for payers to scrutinize high-ticket items have become a sizzling specialty industry.  Not surprising that as mid-market portfolio companies they’ve fetched up to six times ROI in as little as two years.
  • Digital Medicine -- Hospitals are desperate to reduce costly medical errors, so companies that digitize medical records for quick access and transparency have become another coveted gem. (The need is great -- medical errors kill the equivalent of a 747 full of patients every 24 hours.)
  • Hospital Business & Health Consulting Firms -- They rescue medical institutions from patient accounting, business operations, and other none-core burdens, and are good medicine for beleaguered hospitals…. So they’re an attractive PE play in a largely under-penetrated market.

Get into the Provider Market … But When?

While some cost containment companies are some of the prized catches in healthcare PE today, what if you have eyes on the provider market-- especially companies that cater to America’s vast graying population?  Should you buy into home health care, assisted living, nursing homes, product distribution, and disease management … or wait while the drama plays out in Washington?

 

And what about the vaunted life sciences sector that’s about to go mainstream with its gene-based miracles?  Should that be your play?  And when?

 

The truth is, say experts, you can grow robust companies in virtually any area of healthcare today by being part of the solution … by helping make the system work better.

 

So the landscape is panoramic and the opportunities rich.  But how do you get a foothold on what you need to gain entry? And how do you learn what other investors are thinking? The answer:

Where To Place

Your Healthcare Investment bets

(No Matter What They Do in Washington!)

Thursday, November 13, 2008

This timely, fascinating, fact-packed program is being chaired by Scott Hilinski, Managing Director of Nautic Partners LLC, the Providence PE firm widely known for its in mid-market healthcare plays. Scott will be joined by four panels of experts on every phase of private equity investing in the sector, from origination to value creation to exit strategy.

A special keynoter will be Edward M. Kennedy Jr. , son of the famed U.S. Senator and president of Marwood Group, the New York- and Washington-based healthcare lobbying and consulting firm.  Ted will offer his respected insider views and predictions for the industry.

             

Just a little of the intelligence you’ll take away from this special annual gathering … now in its third year --

  • What the possible “rules of the road” might be if healthcare reform is enacted, and how to quickly position yourself for any eventuality
  • The cost containment play: What you need to know to get into this white-hot arena of watchdog companies
  • How mid-market PE funds are winning with stakes in drug firms, diagnostic test-makers, disease-management, and retail health clinics, among other specialties
  • The art of approaching a distressed healthcare company for takeover… learning to balance empathy and resolve in making the deal
  • Seller tips in healthcare-- get coached on commanding your side of the negotiating table
  • The life sciences play--  Why gene-based medicine is finally ready for prime time—and why despite tight credit elsewhere, this sector has access to capital
  • How to uncover the skeletons in a possible buyout … what your due diligence people need to be dogged in looking for in this sector
  • How to identify any weak links in management and get the right people in the right place … right away
  • Proven approaches to adding value in the major healthcare categories--and how to single out which will be the quickest to succeed
  • Avoiding deal-structure blunders that can ruin an eventual exit and force you to turn a good buyer away

You should attend this MasterClass if you are--

  • a GP or LP considering portfolio companies in the healthcare industry
  • a corporate development professional within the healthcare industry looking at non-organic growth opportunities
  • a principal of a healthcare company considering a sale
  • a hedge fund manager or venture capitalist who is seeking investments in healthcare
  • a lender wishing to back healthcare transactions
  • an attorney who advises on M&A deals in healthcare
  • an investment banker who actively pursues deals in the healthcare industry
  • an executive search professional recruiting for the healthcare industry
