The Need
Multi-Site Roll-Up Strategy in Healthcare Services

A lower-middle market private equity firm, with a successful history in executing multi-site roll-up strategies, sought to delve into the healthcare services sector. Their vision was clear: identify a healthcare practice that resonates with their investment thesis, marking the inception of a broader roll-up strategy. The ideal acquisition would be a multi-doctor practice in the Midwest, South or Southeast, boasting more than $5 million in annual net collections and an entry EBITDA above $2 million.

The Challenge
Precise Buy-Side Search

The challenge was twofold: identifying a healthcare practice that not only met the stringent financial criteria but also aligned with the firm’s strategic vision for a multi-site roll-up. The firm sought a partner who would reinvest back into the business, ensuring a synergy that would fuel the envisioned growth and expansion. The search required a nuanced understanding of the healthcare services sector, coupled with a strategic approach to identify practices that resonated with the firm’s investment thesis.
