Pricing the business involves reviewing your financial information and looking at trends, profitability, amount of recurring revenue, and also finding out the details of your business.
The types of buyers for an EHR software company include Private equity firms, Public and Private Technology companies, and wealthy tech entrepreneurs. The best buyer is usually someone that can leverage your technology, customers, and employees to profitability grow the firm after an acquisition.
Understanding EHR Software Companies
We understand that as an owner of an EHR Software Company you have had to comply with a lot of regulations including the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Meaningful Use and all the different stages of compliance. You had to make a significant investment in software development to meet the requirement of stage 1, 2, and 3 MU to provide Medicare and Medicaid incentives. Some of the EHR Software companies couldn't keep up with the investments, so if your company has made it to this point, you would need to have enough customer retention to fund the software developments.
Potential buyers look for companies with high customer retention and recurring revenue. Of course, they are also interested in profitable companies, but we can sell EHR software companies that may not be profitable as long as their revenue is between $700,000 and $40 Million.
Examples of 2 EHR Software Companies that we have sold
1. Sigmund Software: The owner was retirement age and had developed an EMR software solution for Mental & Behavioral Health Companies. He had about 60 customers and had a comprehensive solution for the niche that the company services. This allowed them to provide better solutions than more generic EHR Software Companies. The owner previously hired an M&A firm that charged an upfront fee, and unfortunately, they were unable to get him any offers. Once we had the assignment, we had about 70 potential buyers that signed Non-Disclosure Agreements, and 4 of the buyers made offers for the company. With leverage from multiple offers, we were able to get the full asking price for the business. The winning bidder was a Canadian Technology company that wanted to diversify into Health Care Software.
2. Life Systems Software: They develop EHR and EMR software primarily for Chiropractors. As with the previous EHR software company that we sold the fact that they have a niche market allows them to have customized solutions that are superior to general EHR software for the chiropractic niche. The owner had built up a successful business since 1992 and was now ready to retire. We developed a marketing plan to protect their confidentiality during the sale and contact many potential buyers that we have relationships with that are interested in buying successful software companies. Through having multiple interested parties, we were able to negotiate terms that worked for both buyer and seller. The buyer was an experienced software executive.
