What a difference a year makes!

 

In 2009, investors were expecting a massive government revamping of the U.S. healthcare system, changing the playing field, and creating new winners and losers. At the same time, lenders pulled back, and many potential healthcare deals went undone.

 

Fast forward to today. Just‑passed healthcare reform may create a "Golden Era" of healthcare investing. So optimism is soaring, and interest in exits is booming. Even healthcare IPOs are occurring again.

 

Best of all, most healthcare companies showed relatively good performance during last year’s downturn -- in fact current growth rates in healthcare spending exceed virtually all other categories. And with greater certainty on what areas will and will not be affected by Washington, the pricing of healthcare services is up 50% to 60% over last year.

 

And there’s more.  As the biggest segment of the U.S. economy, healthcare has dozens of cross currents that create microtrends investors can capitalize on. The industry is constantly being restructured, with new business models being developed as companies find ways to do things more efficiently.

 

To help you sort out healthcare’s path in this new decade, The Capital Roundtable is pleased to announce our fifth annual MasterClass™ on PE investments in middle-market healthcare companies --

 

Beyond Healthcare Reform --

Implications for Creating Success

For New PE Deals & for Portfolio Companies

 

Whether you’re seeking to identify the next great healthcare deal, or to accelerate the growth of your current portfolio companies, you’ll want to make plans now to join us on Thursday, April 22, in New York.

 

This MasterClass is exceptionally timely, as you’ll hear the latest hard information and Washington whispers on which healthcare reforms, if any, are likely to become reality. What’s more, you’ll realize just how many healthcare sub-sectors have little or no correlation to whatever the Obama administration may eventually pass.

 

With such attractive investment opportunities, we’re pleased to offer a price to match. Sign up now for this MasterClass to receive our Early Bird Registration Bonus -- a generous $300 Discount!

 

A Decade-Long View in One Information-Packed Day.

 

By attending this all-NEW MasterClass, you’ll be in an excellent position to realize healthcare profits over the next 12 to 36 months. We’ll reveal best practices for finding the most favorable investment areas right now -- turning the spotlight on health IT and medical management … on diagnostic services and specialty pharma … on medical devices, specialty hospitals, and more.

 

And we’ll take a 360º look at adding value to healthcare portfolio companies -- an expressway to profitability as individual initiatives from your CEO and top management can make a significant impact. We’ll discuss acquisitions, strategic alliances, cost management, and operational improvements.

 

Plus to chair this MasterClass, we’re pleased to have Jeffrey R. Jay, M.D., managing director of Great Point Partners in Greenwich, Conn., one of the country’s premier healthcare investment firms with over half a billion in invested capital.

 

Jeffrey’s background combines the medical skill of a physician with the financial acumen of a Harvard Business School graduate.  At Great Point, he manages investments from $7 million to $35 million in consumer health, generic drugs, health care services, information technology, medical devices, specialty pharmaceuticals, and other growth areas of healthcare,.

 

Specialists are Always Worth Hearing, and We Have 20.

 

Along with Jeffrey’s insights, you’ll get the experienced views of 20 noted healthcare experts who will help you achieve investment success. Four panel discussions will bring together investors who do all sizes and types of deals, plus lenders, investment bankers, and healthcare industry advisors who are masters of this changing marketplace.

 

Count on this full-day MasterClass to bring you the answers to questions like these --

  • Will healthcare reform be comprehensive or incremental, and how will it affect investors?
  • How will healthcare deal flow react as the economy rebounds?
  • Which sub-sectors within healthcare are most likely to benefit in the months to come?
  • How are healthcare exits getting done? Is it time to push forward with IPOs?
  • What are the most common issues affecting healthcare portfolio companies?
  • How can you cope with federal and state regulations and ownership restrictions?
  • Which lenders are financing deals, and what financing structures are typical today?
  • What are the opportunities in healthcare IT, and where do the best opportunities lie?
  • How can you participate in pharma and biotech through outsourced services?
  • What future innovations such as personalized medicine should be on your radar?
  • And much, much more.

Appointments are Now Being Accepted.

 

Our previous healthcare MasterClasses have filled up quickly, and we expect the same for this program -- as you will not find this up-to-the-minute counsel any other place. So we encourage you to make your plans today while space is still available.

 

Remember, too, that this MasterClass offers you excellent networking opportunities. You’ll have plenty of time to meet your fellow attendees and our featured speakers between presentations and at lunch, and you’ll leave with a full complement of strategies and tactics that you can immediately put to use.

 

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 March 5, 2010, and you’ll save $300 off our standard fee! Please make your reservation now so you’re not disappointed. We’ll be looking forward to greeting you.
