Highlights of 2022 M&A Activity in ARM Sector
Rockville, MD – January 31, 2023 – Greenberg Advisors (GA), a leading investment bank specializing in M&A advisory in the Accounts Receivable Management (ARM), Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), Healthcare Information Technology (HCIT), and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sectors, announces a preview of its analysis regarding the 2022 M&A activity in the ARM sector, as well as two ARM industry transactions in which it advised.
In total, 23 transactions worth nearly $800 million were completed in the ARM sector in 2022. While deals that were under $25 million in transaction size remained the most common by far, there was an uptick in activity among transactions in the $25 million-$50 million range, which represented 17% of transactions compared to 10% in 2021. Independently-owned strategic buyers were the most active type of buyer, completing 39% of the transactions, followed by private equity-backed strategics at 35%.
Among the 10 transactions in which GA advised in 2022, the firm would like to announce two ARM deals in particular. The first transaction involved a highly profitable commercial collection business based in the northeastern US. The seller in the second transaction was a well-recognized early-out and Extended Business Office (EBO) vendor to hospitals and healthcare providers throughout the US, with a focus in the Southeast. Both businesses were acquired by private equity-backed strategics. Transaction participants have not yet been announced.
Brian Greenberg, CEO of GA, noted, “Having known the sellers in both transactions for many years, we’re grateful to have played a role in helping them exit their businesses so they can enjoy the results of their hard work.”
GA will release its M&A Update for the ARM industry in February. Brian Greenberg will be attending the upcoming RMAI conference in Las Vegas. Contact Brian to schedule a meeting or call.
