Attendees will gain a detailed overview of the legal and business issues associated with strategic affiliations as a capital source in the healthcare industry covering:

  • Common structures (e.g., partnerships, joint ventures, etc.) in the healthcare industry today.
  • Common participants in strategic affiliations (e.g., vertical integration, new entrants, private equity/venture capital) | how goals may differ and their impact on deal structuring.
  • The rationale for an organization to consider a strategic affiliation for financing purposes vs. more traditional financing methods (e.g. debt vs. cash).

The expert panel will examine industry trends with case examples to address:

  • What makes some deals successful / sustainable and why do some deals fall short of their goals.
  • Which vehicle is right and how should participants evaluate and monitor these opportunities.
  • What key risks should participants be aware of prior to entering into a strategic affiliation – aligning financial, culture and clinical objectives | financial considerations | initial and future capital calls/requirements | need for an exit plan or “pre-nuptial” agreement | ownership of intellectual property | exit considerations.
  • How affiliations have evolved.
  • What we have not seen yet, but is clearly on the horizon.
