Merger activity continues, from strategic consolidations among big companies to distressed sales and capabilities-driven mergers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2010
Mergercast by Booz & Company has released Episode 28 -- Healthcare M&A.
In this episode, Justin Pettit, a Partner at Booz & Company, shares his thinking on what the healthcare M&A market will look like over the remainder of 2010 and beyond, now that deals have heated up again.
Pettit explores a set of timely issues, including:
- The key drivers in healthcare M&A at this point in the cycle
- The importance of capabilities and their impact on post-merger integration
- Those areas that must be addressed in order to properly complete a capabilities-driven merger integration
- The extent to which these findings apply to other industries
"Merger activity continues, from strategic consolidations among big companies to distressed sales and capabilities-driven mergers. The growing biologics market, search for cost savings, international distribution and the recent healthcare legislation will all affect deals moving forward," says Pettit.
