If you are considering selling your practice to a DSO, you need to explore
and understand your options. Commonwealth Transitions is here to
help. Here are several factors to consider when selling to a DSO:
1. Competition is a good thing … you need to shop your practice
to multiple DSO/Private Equity buyers in order to receive the highest
price and best terms. If you entertain an offer from only one buyer,
you may be leaving money on the table.
2. While DSO buyers may pay a premium price for your practice,
there are numerous other deal points that will have a significant
impact on your net sales proceeds, post-closing compensation, and
overall satisfaction with the transaction.
3. Not all DSO/Private Equity Buyers are created equal. You need
to vet potential buyers to ensure they have the capital to complete
the purchase and the right culture, practice philosophy, and
infrastructure to support you and your practice post-closing.
When selling to a sophisticated buyer like a DSO, you need an
experienced advisor who will represent your best interest, negotiate the
details, and guide you through the process. Commonwealth Transitions
has spent years vetting DSO/Private Equity buyers in order to provide
our clients with the best possible options and terms available in the
marketplace. Call us today for a free consultation.
