The forecast for US healthcare; IT continues to evolve
March 09, 2017
In partnership with PitchBook, RSM US has released its latest sector coverage: the 2016 Annual Health Care Spotlight and the Information Technology Spotlight. Packed with detailed datasets covering everything from public-to-private transactions to quarterly M&A, each report also features insights from RSM US sector experts.
Key healthcare takeaways and issues:
Are the longer-term trends set in place by the Affordable Care Act essentially irrevocable?
Median US healthcare M&A deal size hit $75 million in 4Q, signifying disparity in the market
More sponsor-less investors—teams with investors aligned to deploy funds only when a deal surfaces—are entering the arena
Key IT takeaways and issues:
M&A activity in the back half of 2016 slid to the lowest point in four years
According to RSM US principals, "Valuations may be becoming more realistic," even if on a more segmented basis
PE groups continue to hunt for proprietary deal flow, which is proving difficult, hence a quarterly spike in the proportion of add-ons
