A Dealmakers Guide to Health Care M&A During the COVID-19 Pandemic

November 18, 2020
Nashville Health Care Council
Webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed the M&A market at every stage of the deal-making process – from complicating on-site visits and intensifying the diligence process to introducing valuation gaps (relative to pre-COVID-19 expectations), complicating purchase agreement negotiations and limiting the availability of debt financing. Despite the hurdles, healthcare dealmakers continue to pursue attractive acquisition opportunities, with the healthcare market substantially rebounding in many sectors since July. We expect this activity to continue through year-end and beyond.

Join Bass, Berry & Sims as they provide a deep dive into COVID-19-related transactional issues for the healthcare industry to consider, including the evaluation of stimulus funds under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act), the negotiation of key deal terms in the acquisition agreement, compliance concerns, and the risk of government enforcement. All participants will receive a copy of their recently published Dealmakers Guidebook.

This Nashville Health Care Council webinar will take place from on November 18, 2020, 8:00 – 9:00 AM CST. For more information and register, please visit the NHCC website. All participants will receive a copy of their recently published Dealmakers Guidebook.
