peHUB’s Debut DealBeat

In 2013, we’re aiming to roll out a regular web video series featuring our friends here at peHUB, Reuters, Venture Capital Journal and Buyouts Magazine (and, some guests, as well). Private equity has spent billions in the healthcare space in 2012, with firms’ appetites only held back—in some cases—by the Affordable Care Act’s trip to the United States Supreme Court. Now that it is the law of the land, I’m told by my Reuters colleague Nadia Damouni, we will see more healthcare IT transactions—like the one Allscripts may execute with Blackstone—and LBO shops expanding plays in other sector verticals. Stay tuned for more at peHUB, next year.
