STATE of the HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY
The conference opens with a Keynote panel on the “State of the Industry” from the proverbial ’36-thousand feet.’ The panel will be made up of leading healthcare experts with first-hand information on the latest from Washington; and real-world experiences from the front-lines of healthcare system. Where in the healthcare sector, are investors looking for opportunities? Conversely, which healthcare models are investors avoiding? Why? What can investors expect to encounter when investing in or acquiring healthcare firms in Asia and ROW (rest-of-world)?
PM Networking Break
Roll-Ups and Multi-Physician Practices
One of the fastest-growing areas of healthcare M&A deal-flow is occurring in the multi-physician practice sector. Hospitals, PE firms and Health Insurance companies are acquiring multi-physician practices; and the practices with common services (i.e. orthopedic, dental, etc.) are themselves participating in more strategic roll-ups. What is the state-of-play, and future outlook in this sector?
5:00 – 6:00pm

Private Investors Roundtable
Healthcare investing from the POV of private equity, VCs, REITs, and other financial buyers. How are financial investors sizing up deal-flow opportunities in the healthcare space over the next 12 months? In which sectors are financial investors showing the most interest, and which areas are being avoided?
Healthcare Transaction Services Roundtable
An examination of best practices in valuations, regulatory compliance, risk management, due diligence and more. The “dos and don’ts” before, during and after the healthcare deal. What are the specific transaction must-knows regarding investing in acquiring Asian market and ROW (rest-of-world) companies?
AM Networking Break
Investment Opportunities in Medicinal & Recreational Cannabis
At least thirty (30) states have broadly legalized the use of cannabis – and cannabis infused products – for both medicinal and recreational use. This panel will address the investment and M&A opportunities in the healthcare use of medicinal cannabis and related enterprises; as well as opportunities in the recreational market. Investment dollars have increased substantially in this space, and have almost doubled year-over-year since 2017. What do investors need to know, regarding issues such as due-diligence, valuation, risk management and State vs. Federal, statutory and regulatory conflicts?
Healthcare Partnerships & Joint Ventures Roundtable
A discussion of the pros and cons of Healthcare acquisitions vs. partnerships. When does it make more sense to enter into joint ventures and partnerships than engaging in outright mergers or acquisitions? How are some of the most innovative transactions, and business models being structured? What role does the underlying Real Estate play in these deals?
