Valuations for Specialty Practices at an All-Time High...

An evolution of thoughts towards DSOs...

Over the past couple of years, I have been lucky to spend a lot of time with my father.  We have been brought together as a family for celebrations and memorials (sadly) over the years.  Each time we get together, he asks me about the ever-changing landscape in the DSO M&A markets.  You see, my father is a pediatric dentist.  He started his practice in 1976, grew the practice to a multi-doctor single location, saw 100+ children a day in the summertime, and ultimately sold his practice to his associate about 7 years ago.  Over the course of my 14-year career in the business of dentistry, my father and I have always talked shop.

3 Reasons to Sell Your Large Practice or Group Today

(or wait 4+ years to attain the same after-tax benefit)

When demand exceeds supply, prices go up. Today, demand from DSOs and Private Equity Groups (PEGs) far exceeds supply for dental practices and dental groups.  On all deals we have taken to market in 2021, we have noticed a remarkable phenomenon: we have more aggressive bidders than ever (more than 2019) and higher offers than we ever thought attainable.  Below are some real examples of what our clients are experiencing:

Everyone Has a Plan Until You Get Punched in the Mouth...

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Mar 2, 2021 11:09:58 AM

2020 M&A Year In Review

As 2019 ended, the M&A markets in the DSO markets were white hot.  Every deal that we took to market enjoyed multiple bids and our clients were continually awarded extremely lucrative valuations for their businesses.  The buy-side was voracious: there were more buyers than ever and new ones appearing every day willing to pay more and more to enter the DSO space.  The debt markets were strong, the money was cheap, and lenders were clamoring for deals.  It was truly a sellers’ market and the valuations kept creeping higher and higher.

Internally, our plan was to scale the business as we were picking up more and more mandates on the sell-side and saw an ever-deepening pool of investors and buyers.

No Matter the Size of Your Group Practice Retention is Key to Growth...

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Mar 12, 2020 10:31:42 AM

As the Wall Street Journal notes, a high employee turnover rate can cost “twice an employee’s salary to find and train a replacement.” Not only are there financial repercussions, a high turnover rate can also lower the knowledge base in your company and decrease performance and morale. If you want to avoid this negativity, it’s best to retain your best employees.

Whether you’re a group practice owner or an executive at a multi-national corporation, employee retention is key to long-term growth. Throughout the end of this year, we’ll tackle a number of issues affecting the growth of your organization, from retention to talent acquisition and compensation to employee motivation.
