Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Selling your practice? But first, learn the lingo!

If you are considering selling your practice, you might have different goals. You might want to “pay it forward” and sell it to an associate or to a partner in a buy-in or buy out. You might be focused on a sale to a company/person who will best serve your former employees and clients by preserving the culture you have worked so hard to build. And/or you might just be interested in maximizing the return on your investment and in this market and in this time, that likely means selling to a corporate consolidator. This course focuses primarily on the corporate sale but that doesn’t mean you don’t also care about your former employees and clients and about the culture of the practice.

After completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • explain why the veterinary industry is an attractive target for private equity company investment
  • discuss the general concepts and terminology involved in an M&A transaction
  • outline the different models that consolidators use in order to align interests with the Seller, such as what is rollover equity and how is it structured
