With higher interest rates causing anxiety throughout much of the first quarter of 2023, McGuireWoods' Geoff Cockrell invites David Baker, Managing Director at FTI Consulting Group, to share his view of the market and how it’s impacting sellers in the M&A space.
Healthcare as an industry is more resilient in a down economy, David explains, as demand is less likely to be impacted by economic factors. This resilience attracts investors looking to avoid the challenges present in other sectors.
“I think what attracts a lot of investors to the segment is how steady it is,” says David. “Healthcare hasn't had the highs and lows that many other sectors have gotten over the years.”
The healthcare economy needs efficiency to close the current gap between demand and supply, and investors who find these solutions will emerge as winners. With interest rates on the rise, David provides insights into how this is impacting overall pricing and deal structures, along with what buyers and sellers need to be considering.
