After a dormant period in merger and acquisition activity brought on by the Great Recession, economic recovery and the business necessity of consolidating operations in the face of federal healthcare reform is causing a swift upsurge in M&A activity.

However, the form of M&As has changed: Financial investment firms such as Warburg Pincus and Cerberus Capital Management are making whole acquisitions for their own portfolios rather than just taking a minority stake. Relatively new hospital chains such as Prime Healthcare are quickly consolidating the market for medium and small-sized facilities and offering a new paradigm for financially distressed organizations.

California has long been at the forefront of the healthcare business, so how will the swiftly accelerating and shifting M&A environment affect the Golden State? This session will discuss the present climate for deal-making in California, which targets may be the most attractive, and what the future will hold.

Please join Jill H. Gordon, vice chair of the healthcare law practice at Davis Wright Tremaine, Paul F. Lawrence, partner and healthcare merger specialist in the law firm of McDermott Will & Emery, and Guy M. Masters, senior vice president of The Camden Group, to discuss the M&A environment in California.
