SPEAKER: Janani Sankaran -Industry Analyst-Business and Financial Services-Frost & Sullivan.
2008-2009 ushered in a variety of changes to the global healthcare industry. In response to recessionary environments, participants are preparing for intense competition, cost control measures and jockeying for optimal positioning within the market. The mergers and acquisition scenario has also witnessed significant changes with valuation multiples, deal value and volume reeling under the post recessionary blues. It is expected that the scenario is likely to change with President Obama's Healthcare bill and the general recovery in the stock markets.
This briefing will benefit private equity companies, venture capitalists, hedge funds, asset management companies, investment bankers, universities, and corporate clients with an interest in healthcare and other retail investors.
"The recession has had an adverse impact on the mergers and acquisitions in the healthcare industry. Improvement in the economic situation coupled with President Obama's stimulus package is expected to serve as a boost to the investments in the defensive healthcare sector. In addition, the recovery in the stock markets is expected to see more funds being raised by companies by way of equity transactions which will help fuel the mergers and acquisitions," says Janani Sankaran, Industry Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Business and Financial Services group.
