Healthcare Investment Banking

AMB’s Investment Banking Group has considerable experience advising leading healthcare companies in mergers and acquisitions and capital formation transactions. Our particular focus is advising growth-oriented and middle-market firms as they undertake various business model changes due to healthcare reform. We have acted as advisors in several high-value healthcare M&A deals, including payer and provider vertical integration strategies. We can help clients avoid pitfalls and short-term strategies that are costly and counter-productive to long-term goals.

Why Healthcare
Healthcare is a large and growing part of the U.S. economy, currently comprising approximately 17% of the nation’s GDP and estimated to continue growing rapidly – at twice the rate of inflation. Traditional provider and payer business models have been on opposite sides of the table – those that provide healthcare and those that pay for it. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, many of the traditional methods of delivery and payment are changing. New regulation brings opportunities as well as challenges for various healthcare constituents. Lines are blurring between payers and providers, and consolidation will be a major factor on all sides of healthcare for the foreseeable future.

Changes in healthcare are not new. From the introduction of group health insurance as an employee benefit in the late 1930s, through the commencement of Medicare and Medicaid in the 1960s, to the enactment of the HMO Act of 1974, it is clear that healthcare continually redefines itself.

At AMB, we combine our healthcare industry expertise with our hands-on approach to due diligence, research and customized strategy development in advising clients on value-creating transactions and strategies for their long-term success.
