Merritt brings a unique perspective to our clients because we also own and operate a large regional network of surgery centers, giving us an in-depth ‘operators’ understanding of the ASC business which allows us to optimize your business before we market the facility. We often find expense, staffing and operational issues to address before a sale. As an operator, we have credibility with buyers and are often able to effectively present a facility on a pro forma basis that can result in a substantial multiple of actual and projected earnings.

Extensive Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) Expertise

We are able to leverage our investment banking background, and as registered securities brokers* we have both the experience and the qualifications required to manage this extremely complex process.
