Our professionals specialize in business management, accounting, research, tax and economics. We are dedicated to bringing best-in-class solutions to solve the complex issues families face today.
A family office created after a health care biotech founder’s liquidity event asked FTI Consulting for assistance in creating a platform for funding health care companies with significant upside potential. At the time of engagement, a potential target was in their sights.
Our Transaction Services group identified a team with deep health care expertise, whose consultants performed comprehensive due diligence, including quality of earnings, working capital requirements, current industry drivers and financial and HR risk factors. FTI Consulting’s tax advisors assisted with identifying the most advantageous tax structures as well as regulatory and compliance issues.
The client successfully negotiated and closed the transaction. As a result of advising the client during the acquisition, we were able to identify and recommend best practices in building a platform going forward, including treasury, accounting, HR and other functions.
