Q1-2019 Dermatology Update

The dermatology sector continues to see robust transaction volume, attributable to the multitude of strategic platforms consolidating their respective markets. However, while transaction volume has remained elevated, private equity recapitalizations have been far and few between in recent quarters. The first quarter of 2019 marked the third consecutive quarter without a platform transaction. In a sector with an abundance of private equity backed-platforms, and a scarcity of sizable, independent practices, Provident expects this trend to continue until new funds start to seek out established, private equity-backed platforms to invest in. With the market maturing and many groups having had institutional backing for 3+ years, Provident expects secondary transactions to start to occur throughout the balance of the year.
