Healthcare and Life Sciences corporate finance advice

Supporting your growth and business sale strategies

Yours is a perennially active market for Mergers & Acquisitions, and Initium has significant experience in successfully advising healthcare and life science business across a wide range of specialist disciplines. These include client companies active in medical device and consumables manufacture and distribution, medcomms and pharmaceutical marketing, market access, regulatory submissions, medical imaging, NHS Spine data, blood reagent diagnostics and genome prototyping.

Notable among our 70+ transactions in this space is the prevalence of international acquirers seeking a presence in the UK, and organisations looking to access a marketplace with high barriers for new entrants.

We know your sector

Initium’s healthcare and life sciences expertise

  • 70+ transactions completed across our trading history
  • Track record with specialist businesses
  • Engaging with multiple buyer types, including global players, Private Equity (PE) and UK groups
  • Competing acquirer types drive choice and deal terms

Selected healthcare sector transactions

Technology, innovation and regulatory expertise are key market drivers in the healthcare space. Our track record demonstrates that niche businesses are likely to attract interest from major-name acquirers, including listed organisations, fast-growing healthcare groups, and Private Equity platform investors.

Negotiation, valuation and growth services

In an active sector like yours, privately owned businesses are often identified and directly approached as ‘target acquisitions’ by serial acquirers and investors. If you have been contacted – however informally – by an interested party (or parties), we can help you assess the approach, and provide insight, real-time market intelligence and comparable data to help you proceed.

If you already have a proceedable offer, we would urge you not to enter any sale process unadvised. Initium can support you with your preferred buyer, and redress any experience gap as your independent sell-side partner.

If a business sale is some time away, we can support your long-term strategy with a Valuation Assessment, delivering actionable information on your strengths and weaknesses from an investor perspective.

“My experience with a [previous M&A transaction] was horrific, so this time I wanted to hire an advisor good at selling businesses. We chose you to help us find serious buyers with a good reputation”

– Guy Mills, GBUK, received investment from H2 Equity Partners
