Coker Capital



FOCUSED EXPERTISE Throughout the Healthcare Industry

Coker Capital Advisors represents companies throughout the healthcare industry, providing financial advisory services aimed at long-term growth and value creation for our clients. Unlike many other firms, our firm does not operate sales and trading, lending, or other platforms that can distract from our core business and create conflicts of interest. We focus exclusively on providing the best guidance and service available to our clients.

Our firm provides senior-level attention to its clients throughout every transaction, regardless of scope and size. The execution of a sale, acquisition, or financing assignment is complex, and each one presents its own unique blend of challenges. We believe that the optimal outcome for our clients can be achieved only with customized solutions delivered through the expertise and experience of our senior professionals.

Coker Capital Advisors serves shareholders and management teams of private and public companies. We advise privately-held businesses, private equity groups, and public corporations on divestitures, acquisitions, private capital raises, and other strategic initiatives.

Mergers & Acquisitions
Coker Capital Advisors advises on all facets of mergers and acquisitions transactions from initial engagement through closing for clients seeking to sell a business or those pursuing a targeted buyside opportunity.

Sellside Advisory
Providing sellside advisory services to middle market healthcare companies is the cornerstone of our service offering. We employ a tailored approach for each sellside assignment and guide our clients through every step of the sale process. Our clients can count on us for thorough advanced preparation, disciplined process execution, and steadfast advocacy on their behalf.

We begin each assignment by listening to our clients to ensure that we fully understand their objectives. We then engage in extensive due diligence, financial analysis, and discussions with management to ensure that we develop the optimal strategy to meet those objectives. Our preparation and extensive relationships in the healthcare market help us develop a thoughtful list of potential acquirers, which we personally access in an expedient manner to maintain confidentiality and minimize disruption to our clients’ operations. Our experience in the healthcare industry affords us the ability to present our clients' investment merits effectively to each prospective buyer and proactively address any company or sector-specific issues that need to be mitigated. Our disciplined sale processes are designed to create a competitive dynamic that drives an increased valuation for the company. Because shareholder value depends on the terms and structure of the completed transaction (and not on purchase price alone), we continue to serve as an advocate during all negotiations through closing. We endeavor to limit our clients' post-closing liability and, when appropriate, position them to benefit economically from the upside generated by their business going forward.

Buyside Advisory
For clients that are either seeking to identify a merger partner that can help them accelerate growth and increase profitability or execute a consolidation strategy, we also provide buyside advisory services.

By leveraging our extensive relationships in the healthcare sector and our thorough industry research, we can work with clients on a variety of buyside assignments from handling one-time targeted acquisitions to serving as an ongoing complement to our clients’ business development efforts. We identify potential acquisition candidates, access their decision makers, qualify their suitability as targets through financial analysis and due diligence, negotiate purchase agreements,and manage the transaction process from start to finish.
