In managing their respective businesses, there comes a time where the practitioner is faced with critical decisions such as obtaining financial capital for continued growth, or identifying an exit strategy. This course offers an introduction to physical therapy practice acquisitions through private equity transactions featuring physical therapists who have been involved in multiple private equity transactions on the “sell side” and private equity investors who have been involved in transactions on the “buy side.” This session discusses important practical considerations involved in the diligence process in which both buyers and sellers engage in evaluating a potential partnership through acquisition. Included in this discussion is an explanation of the different types of private equity buyers, valuation methods used in determining the enterprise value of a private practice, the post-acquisition private equity/practitioner relationship, and the management metrics used by private equity companies in measuring the performance of the physical therapy practice. These management metrics are also essential tools for private practitioners who would be well-served by implementing these in operating their own practices, independent of any relationship with a private equity company.
