Behavioral Health Business
Mike Moran of Team M+A Speaks with Behavioral Health Business Regarding the 2020 Q4 Outlook for Healthcare M&A
The behavioral health care industry entered 2020 with strong momentum on the mergers and acquisitions front, coming off a year filled with 85 deals in 2019 and 97 the year before that.
For the most part, experts predicted 2020 would see more of the same, with private equity (PE) firms and strategic buyers showing continued interest in middle market companies operating in hot subsectors such as autism treatment services.
Then the coronavirus hit. The COVID-19 emergency slowed deal-making to a near halt in most industries, including behavioral health. But now, it appears the worst of that impact is finally behind us, according to Mike Moran, principal at the nationwide M&A advisory firm American HealthCare Capital.
