TRSA recently added a new panel to its upcoming 12th Annual Healthcare Conference & Exchange scheduled for Nov. 15-16 in Memphis, TN.

The panel, titled “Private Equity (PE) and Capital Markets Interest and Impact on the Healthcare Market Consolidation,” will feature the following executives:

  • Ryan Chimenti, managing director, CIBC
  • Jonathan Kaye, managing director, Moelis
  • Kiran Prassad, managing director, Stephens (Health & Life Sciences)
  • Matt Sznewajs, group head & managing director, Piper Sandler & Co.

These influential voices from the financial sector and key industry players will shed light on the dynamics and implications of this evolving landscape. Andy Kratky, the president & CEO of TRSA operator member Emerald Textiles, San Diego, will moderate the panel.

During the past decade, private equity has increasingly invested in the linen, uniform and facility services industry, particularly companies serving the acute and nonacute healthcare sectors for a variety of reasons including:

  • Stable, predictable and reliable cash flow
  • Resilience and recession-resistant essential services
  • Market fragmentation and regional geography with opportunities to consolidate and scale
  • Long-term contracts providing a degree of predictability and assurance
