PR Newswire | Feb. 13, 2020

Oral Surgeons are being courted by Private Equity but is now the time to sell? Viper Equity Partners responds.

PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- It is no surprise that oral surgery is the hot buy for 2022 with DSO's and private equity firms. It is truly the gold rush of dentistry. So, we called on the experts David C Branch and Jonathan Guise of Viper Equity Partners to get insight into this amazing industry. Q: What can a Oral surgery group expect a deal to look like? Viper: What we are seeing are TOP DOLLAR deals. A typical deal will be based on a multiple of EBITDA (like net profit). The multiples we are seeing are in the 7x-10x range of an adjusted EBITDA which includes doctor compensation. The deals will pay 70% cash at close to the sellers and 30% will be rolled into equity in the buying company. These are partnership deals, so the doctors post close are shareholders and owners not employees. The deals can be very lucrative with earnouts, bonus programs and incentive plans.
