RoundTable Seeks New Platform and Carve Out Investment Opportunities

RoundTable seeks to partner with healthcare companies that will benefit from our extensive industry relationships and operating and transaction expertise. RoundTable partners with owner/founders and their management teams to build on their companies’ strong foundations by utilizing RoundTable’s operating experience, strategic resources, and industry relationships. Since 2001, RoundTable has successfully partnered with over 20 owner/founders and their management teams. Relative to a full sale or partnership with others, our model has provided substantially more value, generating significant returns for these roll-over shareholders.

RoundTable also works with corporate parents to execute complex carve outs of assets without dedicated infrastructure. We believe that our unique operational capabilities are well suited to extracting and transitioning these businesses.

We encourage you to think of RoundTable as you encounter owner/founders, equity owning management teams, or corporate parents that might find our unique value proposition attractive. RoundTable is highly focused on finding and evaluating new platform investment opportunities in our target sectors of the healthcare industry. These sectors include:

  • Medical devices
  • Medical products and disposables
  • Specialty distribution
  • Specialty pharmaceuticals (both branded and generic)
  • Over-the-counter products
  • Nutraceuticals, probiotics, vitamins and supplements
  • Outsourced medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturing and related services

RoundTable Platforms Seek New Add-On Investment Opportunities

RoundTable’s strategy is to utilize our extensive healthcare operating and transaction experience to improve the long-term growth and profitability of our portfolio companies.
