Presentation Recap: 2014 Health Care Investors Conference

Publications

November 19, 2014

Bass, Berry & Sims PLC and Deloitte co-hosted the fourth annual Health Care Investors Conference designed to connect investors with leaders in the health care industry. We discussed trends in health care investing and heard from management teams and their private equity investors about generating and fostering opportunities to create health care solutions. The conference was intended for managing directors and principals at private equity firms and executive management teams of national health care companies.

Supporting organizations included: the Entrepreneur Center, the Healthcare Private Equity Association, the Nashville Health Care Council and the Nashville Capital Network.

The full presentation deck is provided in the pdf below, and materials referenced during the program are available via the following links:

  • Deloitte M&A Trends report 2014 - Over the past 18 months, merger and acquisition (M&A) activity has accelerated in the U.S. That trend is poised to continue, if not increase, according to the first annual Deloitte M&A Trends report. Of the 2,500 corporate and private equity respondents, 84 percent of corporate executives anticipate a sustained, if not accelerated, pace of M&A activity in the next 24 months. The vast majority of private equity executives (89 percent) are expecting average to high deal activity going forward.
  • The Great Consolidation: The potential for rapid consolidation of health systems - Deloitte models estimate that after consolidation in the next decade, only 50 percent of current health systems will likely remain. Executives should consider defining how their hospitals will survive: Should they acquire? Differentiate? Seek other relationship types? Staying the course is no longer an option.
