The compromises are being weighed. The draft legislation is being written. And barring some unexpected revelation or distraction, by November the private equity community will have a pretty good idea of what healthcare reform is going to look like.

Which is going to change the course for practically every segment within the healthcare sector -- the providers, the payers, the outsourcing services, and the technology consultants.


Some will move up in the pecking order. Some will be marginalized. And some will become prized targets for acquisition.


It’s all going to be a game changer for the industry, and a plus for a sector that by its very nature is highly attractive as the U.S. population grows and grays. But unless you have a reserved seat at the Obama administration’s bargaining table, as a middle-market PE investor, you’ll need to first hear from healthcare investing specialists about where success is going to be found.


That’s why The Capital Roundtable is pleased to announce our exceptionally timely Fourth Annual MasterClass™ on PE Investing in Middle-Market Healthcare Companies. If you’re among the many investors and executives sitting on the sidelines while reform efforts are in flux, you’ll want to join us on November 12 in New York when we bring clarity to the situation.


On this information-packed day, we’ll give you a welcome head start on doing healthcare deals in 2010 and beyond. From utilization management to home care, from assisted living to behavioral health, we’ll examine every subsector and provide you with up-to-the-minute insights on where the future appears brightest.


And while healthcare reform reportedly carries a high price tag, this MasterClass does not. By signing up now, you can take advantage of our Early Bird Registration Bonus and receive a generous $300 Discount!


Bridging The Valuation Gap.


With financing difficult or impossible to come by, the past twelve months have not been particularly encouraging for healthcare deals. Sellers don’t feel comfortable. Buyers don’t feel comfortable. But as you’ll discover in this full-day MasterClass on Thursday, November 12, 2009, a revamped healthcare system just may be the catalyst that busts this sector wide open.

What’s more, the new initiatives the healthcare community is already pursuing remain relevant. Cost containment is a major plank of the administration’s proposals, and businesses that assist payers in reducing their outlays are desirable players.


Notably, healthcare IT companies are shining because the Obama administration has already expressed its support for this area. The move to electronic medical records continues to pick up adherents and companies that bring this technology to physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers are doing well.


Never has there been as great a reliance on converting revenue into cash for hospitals, medical clinics and physician practices as there is during these tough economic times.  Outsourcers and intermediaries who add efficiency and effectiveness to the revenue cycle appear poised for continued growth.


In addition, you’ve probably heard terms mentioned recently such as medical home, coordination of care, pay for performance, value-based purchasing, accountable care organizations and population health management.  What do these concepts mean, how do they fit into the future direction of healthcare and where will the investment opportunities eventually surface?


Plus if you have healthcare portfolio companies that are adequately capitalized, you have what others will likely be viewing as prized catches. So when you attend this MasterClass, you’ll hear a variety of strategies for adding value to your companies and making them better positioned for a changing landscape.


Leading you through this new world of healthcare will be our chair, C. Taylor Cole Jr., Partner, Charterhouse Group.  We’re delighted to have Taylor’s expertise on call, as he is one of today’s leading authorities on healthcare providers, payers, and outsourcing and distribution models. Since 2001, he has been evaluating and executing all Charterhouse Group investments and portfolio company activities within the healthcare services sector.


Bringing you exceptional content and exceptional networking opportunities sets The Capital Roundtable’s MasterClasses apart from other seminar providers or traditional media presentations. We’re America’s leading conference organization for the private equity community, and our mission is to be first with the information that helps middle-market professionals succeed in turbulent times.


Top-Level Intelligence From 20 PE Healthcare Professionals.


Along with Taylor, you’ll be in the distinguished company of 20 well-known experts in the healthcare sector. These prominent speakers and panelists have a wealth of experience that will help you make promising deals and make portfolio companies shine. You’ll hear from investors who do all sizes and types of deals, plus lenders, investment bankers and healthcare industry advisors -- people who are in the know about what’s taken place and what’s to come. And they’ll come prepared to share with you the ins and outs of the deal world -- such as sourcing attractive opportunities, executing deals in a very tough environment, adding value to portfolio companies and finally, seeking an attractive exit.


By attending this full-day MasterClass, you’ll know more than most investors about the potential and the pitfalls of Washington’s coming legislation. You’ll have a leg up on the competition with your working knowledge of answers like these --


  • What will be the elements of healthcare reform and how can you capitalize on them?
  • Where is healthcare legislation standing and what changes are still being proposed?
  • Which sub-sectors within healthcare are set to benefit from administration policy?
  • What areas within the healthcare space are making investors and lenders skittish?
  • How can you help your portfolio companies prosper amid tightened credit and regulation?
  • What new business models are coming on stream that are designed to contain costs?
  • What are the trends in alternate site healthcare and who are making commitments?
  • How do you identify a distressed healthcare company that’s a turnaround candidate?
  • Why is healthcare IT such an attractive space and how can you take the first step?
  • What special considerations affect the due diligence process today in healthcare?
  • And much, much more.


Our Schedule Fills Fast.


Previous Healthcare MasterClasses have been highly popular, and with this program coming on the heels of long-awaited reform legislation, you can be sure seats won’t last. That’s why we encourage you to make your plans today while space is still available.

Keep in mind that you can look forward not only to comprehensive content, but also excellent connections. Built into the day’s agenda are plenty of networking breaks, plus an open lunch, where you can talk with your fellow attendees and our featured speakers. So you can expect to leave with valuable guidance and contacts.


You should attend this MasterClass if you are a --


  • GP or LP looking to invest in healthcare companies.
  • Partner or operating executive of a healthcare portfolio company.
  • Lender wishing to participate in healthcare transactions.
  • Hedge fund manager or venture capitalist seeking investments in healthcare.
  • Investment banker pursuing deals within the healthcare industry.
  • Attorneys and advisors who focus on the healthcare space.
  • Executive search professionals recruiting for the PE industry.

Remember, register with our Early Bird Discount by October 2, 2009 and you’ll save $300 off our standard fee! So make your reservation now to assure yourself of a seat. We’ll be looking forward to greeting you.
