Steering is Right-Fit M&A™


For many clients (and especially their advisors) M&A is just about dollars. But the best price for the wrong deal might just cost you more that you ever imagined. That’s why many mergers fail.


This is especially true for healthcare clients in which the closing of the transaction isn’t the end, it’s the beginning of an ongoing relationship.


Yes, price matters. We strive to maximize value, the best price in the context of your other concerns. Depending on your goals, aspirations, and desired future, that includes valuable factors such as culture, leadership, personal chemistry, degree of certainty, and degree of retained risk. It’s Right-Fit M&A™.
