Guiding Our Clients Through Mergers & Acquisitions

Coker Capital provides investment banking services aimed at long-term growth and value creation. By providing senior-level attention to clients throughout every transaction, regardless of scope and size, we pride ourselves on developing long-term relationships with our healthcare services clients that extend well beyond the closing date. The execution of a sale, acquisition, or financing endeavor is complex, and we believe that the optimal outcome for our clients can be achieved only with customized solutions delivered through the expertise and experience of our seasoned professionals.

From initial engagement through closing, Coker Capital guides healthcare services clients on all facets of M&A transactions. We execute our transactions with a process that is highly-efficient, limits business disruption, drives valuation, and increases certainty of close.

Sell-Side Advisory

Providing sell-side advisory services to middle-market healthcare companies is the cornerstone of our mergers and acquisitions offerings. Clients who are looking for potential buyers can count on us for thorough advanced preparation, disciplined process execution, and steadfast advocacy on their behalf.

We begin each relationship 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. Throughout the process, our main objective is delivering the best outcome for our client.

Buy-Side Advisory

For clients that are either seeking merger advisory services that can help accelerate growth and increase profitability or execute a consolidation strategy, we also provide buy-side advisory services.

By leveraging our extensive relationships in the healthcare services sector and our market intelligence, we can work with clients on a variety of buy-side 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.
