Company was offered 5x EBITDA without a process, Bridgepoint got them more than 8x
Bridgepoint was selected by our client as it’s exclusive investment bank based on trust, local values and healthcare expertise. The client was offered 5x EBITDA for its company by a well-known private equity firm. They then approached Bridgepoint. The client wanted to maximize value for their company and also find a partner who offered strategic value.
Bridgepoint utilized a confidential targeted auction process to qualified buyers only nationally and internationally who had committed funds and expertise or platforms in the healthcare space and in the company’s niche within healthcare services. Bridgepoint brought to bear more than five credible bids from both strategics and private equity firms. Ultimately, the company selected a strategic bidder who offered tens of millions more value than the unsolicited initial private equity approach offered, and also partnered with a buyer that offered strategic value to the company’s growth plan and mission, while also offering employment to all of the company’s employees.
