Acquire or Be Acquired Healthcare & Life Sciences

Loading Events

Overview

Be it a strategic merger or financial acquisition, the healthcare industry has experienced record-setting deal volume over the last few years. Given transactions within the pharma and biotech space to disruptions in healthcare services, we continue to see financial sponsors seeking out new paths to grow. While some believe the pace of consolidation will increase, others wonder if pricing has become too expensive and appetites for deals, overly exuberant. So is now the time to buy, sell or go public? At DirectorCorps’ annual Acquire or Be Acquired Conference, we explore these potential paths with top executives and members of the boards of leading healthcare organizations.

Agenda

  • Wednesday, June 3

    8:15 AM – 9:00 AM
    Breakfast & Registration

    9:00 AM – 9:10 AM
    Setting the Stage
    To welcome CEOs, Chairmen, board members and C-level executives to the Nasdaq MarketSite, we tee up how and why we’re exploring merger, acquisition and IPO opportunities throughout the day’s program.

    9:10 AM – 9:50 AM
    Keynote: Emerging Financial Growth Opportunities
    The healthcare sector weaves together medical technology, healthcare services, information-driven healthcare technology, life science tools & diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. Thus, it is hard to stay on top of where the industry is headed and what kinds of deals are driving consolidation – hard, but not impossible. Indeed, this keynote session identifies the most relevant issues and trends that need to be on a leadership team’s radar.

    9:50 AM – 10:30 AM
    What Is My Company Worth?
    Understanding your business’s valuation proves a key measure in any M&A transaction. Given that Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations operate in a highly regulated environment — with changing business models, disruptive technologies and significant demands for data — we look at how current market conditions, recent transaction trends and future pricing expectations might be impacted.

    10:30 AM – 10:45 AM
    Refreshment Break

    10:45 AM – 11:15 AM
    Four and a Half Strategic Deals that Make Sense
    Our panel of experts looks at four very different approaches to building strong companies that continue to shape the overall industry: vertical deals, traditional in-market deals, IPOs and joint ventures. Each has its risks — and potential rewards. In addition, we debate the pros and cons of co-research deals and how such ventures might impact future M&A activity.

    11:15 AM – 11:55 AM
    Regulatory and Shareholder Concerns
    Any transaction needs to account for regulatory scrutiny. During this session, we surface the major trends impacting the industry and a few specifics to doing a deal. In addition, we talk about how much time it takes to win regulatory approval, the common objections raised by shareholders and the recent legal issues that have unexpectedly arisen from which participants can learn.

    11:55 AM – 1:00 PM
    Networking Lunch

    1:00 PM – 1:40 PM
    Making Great Acquisitions
    Each merger is distinct — and having a tailored playbook goes a long way to aligning culture, earnings performance, resources and processes. As we’ve seen, a successful M&A deal hinges on its structure and, by extension, how the deal was negotiated. During this session, we explore how to make great acquisitions in the coming years.

    1:40 PM – 2:20 PM
    Potential Growth Killers: Talent, Compensation and Culture
    While many laud their teams, talent and culture, we take a contrarian position during this session, talking about culture and teams, due diligence of talent in a deal and how compensation can disrupt a deal.

    2:20 PM – 2:35 PM
    Refreshment Break

    2:35 PM – 3:15 PM
    Things to Know Before the IPO
    For this year’s CEO panel, we bring together CEOs that are in the process of going or have gone public. What do they wish they knew before they entered the public markets? How did they put their best foot forward as they went public? What do you need to do once you get there? These are all questions we’ll use to open this year’s panel discussion.

    3:15 PM – 5:00 PM
    Networking Reception
