Sell a Healthcare Business
Selling a healthcare business can be emotional. The best advisors can cut through the nonsense of a transaction and clarify what is most important. We take a strategic approach, providing advisory as well as transactional support. Because we have a narrow focus on healthcare, we have unique access to industry relationships that we leverage on behalf of our clients.
As a company evolves, capital is often required to take full advantage of the opportunities. However, the “right” capital is critical. We have built a network of strategic and financial capital providers that truly know healthcare.
Business Advisory Services
It’s lonely being an entrepreneur. We’ve been there. A good sounding board is invaluable. We provide clearly defined advisory engagements to achieve your objectives, including 360 Strategic Assessments, Stage-Based Exit Strategy Planning and Healthcare Insights and Trends Presentation for C-suite executives and boards of directors.
Connections matter. We have built a significant, personal network of senior executives across healthcare that we leverage on behalf of our clients. We make strategic introductions for our clients to help accelerate their growth initiatives.
GET TO KNOW US
At Wyatt Matas, we are advisors in the truest sense. Most investment banks focus entirely on the transaction, never taking the time to understand what the client needs. Our approach is different, primarily because of our experience starting, leading and selling companies of our own. We have been the entrepreneur, the CEO, the leader seeking advice – so we understand that a client needs more than just a broker.
Our market-defining research is the centerpiece of our success in creating proprietary deals, providing exclusive access and insights. We devote significant effort and resources to researching market trends and legislative changes to identify new business models that present fresh opportunities for our clients.
Our years of experience in healthcare – in roles such as CEO, entrepreneur, advisor, board member and investment banker – have yielded us a wide network of close relationships to industry leaders, healthcare organizations and financing sources that achieve our clients’ goals and objectives.
