The valuation experts are purposed with giving an opinion of value that is used for a theoretical purpose. However, a valuation used for real buyers in the marketplace may vary and can dictate different outcomes depending on the buyer’s motives. Even with looking at the same data, variations and range can be quite substantial. Every business owner should understand the value and the metrics of their company.

    Changing Trends Affecting M&A in the Veterinary Industry

    In this episode, Steven Young, Senior Vice President at UBS Wealth Management, and Terry O’Neil, Partner, CPA, CVA at Katz, Sapper, and Miller discuss the special niche of M&A transaction in the Veterinary profession. Terry is nationally known for his work and contribution in this field with over 3 decades of commitment to veterinarians. The conversation focuses on the ‘nuts and bolts’ for Animal Hospital consolidation. Terry addresses the demand surge once COVID hit with the skyrocketing of pet ownership which presented the challenge of staff shortages and much more. Fast forwarding to 2023, nearly 50% of the small animal facilities are now owned by private equity firms which can support these businesses with buying power, marketing, and back-office support. Most veterinarians get into the business because they care about animals and owners’ wellbeing alike. However, when it comes time to take a look at an offer for transitioning, a key factor is to surround yourself with smart and experienced people to help keep the priority on technological progression, employee retention, and customer satisfaction.
