Opening Discussion Topic:
Thanks to COVID, Healthcare M&A activity got off to a slow start during the first half of 2020. But, then along came Teladoc’s $18.5 billion acquisition of Livongo. And, Siemens Healthineers’ acquisition of Varian Medical Systems, for $16.4, and several smaller ($2-4 billion) pharma acquisitions. Not bad for an environment suffering from the country’s worst pandemic in a century, bringing with it massive amounts of uncertainty. In fact, consultancy KaufmanHall suggests that COVID may be acting as a catalyst for strategic partnerships and tactical transactions.
During our Opening Discussion, we’ll look to hear about the major M&A events in your sector, and how they’ve impacted:
Then, our Featured Member, Mike McKinnon, leader of Sheppard Mullin’s Healthcare Private Equity Team, in the Orange County Corporate Practice Group, will share his front-row-seat overview of Healthcare M&A Trends – in 2020, and how they’re positioned to continue impacting the healthcare marketplace in 2021, or not. Mike focuses his practice on corporate and securities law, with an emphasis on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and equity and debt financings in the healthcare and life sciences industries. He’s overseen acquisitions and investments in (and by) medical device companies, diagnostic imaging providers, urgent care and surgery centers, medical groups, physician practices, and health systems.

"ABL can really be life changing, thank you for making it possible. I can’t believe how much I learn from all of you. Mimi should hand out diplomas!"
"The draw for me is the ability to connect with people who are grappling with the challenges that we face in healthcare and an opportunity to bring your problems to a knowledgeable group of people and get good advice and counsel."
"ABL meetings cause me to both learn and think about issues that are not necessarily in my lane. The contacts and opportunities that have come from our first year at ABL have been worth many times the dues."
"I find the cross-discussion between health care sectors to be most valuable!"
"ABL is an environment that always provides great (and current) information and makes me think. A welcoming group of very smart, committed and terrific people."
