2013 healthcare deals by sector
Here's a sneak peek at The Braff Group M&A Insider for the April issue:
Commentary from The Braff Group:
This month, we examine how M&A transaction volume in HME compares with other healthcare service sectors. Even with a 45% fall off in HME deal volume in 2013 vs. 2012, the sector still accounted for a sizeable 19% of the 300 deals completed this past year. Leading the way in 2013 was home health, which, despite an increasingly challenging reimbursement climate and a marked increase in its risk profile, nevertheless accounted for nearly one-third of all healthcare service deals. But the sector to watch out for is behavioral health.
