Health and life sciences
Rapid changes in health technologies, systems and use of data are creating high demand for consulting and technology services. As a result the M&A market for health consultancies is extremely vibrant. Valuations have never been higher and sellers have enormous choice. The professionals in Equiteq’s Global Health and Life Sciences Practice help sellers and buyers find the right solutions to adapt to the current convergence of ideas and data and to derive maximum value from these changes.
"We chose to work with Equiteq because of their deep expertise in the consultancy sector. Throughout the process, the team was on hand to support us and provide insight to facilitate a successful completion."

"At Easton we were expert at advising life sciences and healthcare clients, but were out of our comfort zone when it came to valuing our own firm. So, when we wanted to review our market options, Equiteq’s deep knowledge of consulting M&A and advice on how to de-risk our assets was exactly what we required. Equiteq helped us strengthen our business in key areas. At the end of a two year process, our profits were up by almost 300%, and we sold to Navigant for $15M."
