The volume of healthcare M&A deals and corresponding sale multiples has dramatically risen over the past few years. Strategic investors and financial sponsors are poised to invest record amounts into the healthcare industry in 2017. But which healthcare sub-sectors are likely to attract capital, and why? What are the likely investment trends, and where are the opportunities? How will the Presidential election and a Republican-led Congress impact healthcare investing? Will this be a year of mega-mergers among healthcare insurers and providers, and, if so, will new exit and investment opportunities come to fruition?

Panelists will discuss the pace of healthcare investment in 2017 – how companies are investing, where they are investing, and why and how to position your company for an exit.
