Partnering with a private equity (PE) investor can help physicians monetize the value of their practice.

Why treat your practice differently than other assets in your retirement portfolio?

A PE transaction will provide an up-front cash payment and/or rollover equity in the PE platform. Up-front cash, usually 70-80% of the “real value” of your practice, is calculated on a multiple of the practice’s free cash flow or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (or “EBITDA”).  The remaining balance of purchase price (20%-30%) is usually paid in the form of rollover equity.

Rollover equity converts to additional cash payments upon a secondary sale to another investor down the road. Further, many PE transactions are structured so that if a physician retires, becomes disabled, or dies, his/her rollover equity is purchased at its then fair market value.

Stay tuned for more top considerations for physician groups evaluating PE.
