Pennsylvania, May 2021 – Harbor Healthcare is pleased to announce the successful sale of a Pennsylvania based long-term care (LTC) pharmacy, a leading provider serving assisted living, skilled nursing and group home facilities. The acquirer, a private buyer, is also a successful provider of LTC pharmacy services to the surrounding region. The transaction brings together two prominent pharmacies with extensive synergies and creates tremendous value for both buyer and seller. Building on their existing geographic footprints, the companies can now streamline services, reduce expenses and unlock greater potential throughout their regions.
“The team at Harbor Healthcare presented us with offers from a variety of investors and prospective buyers. Our pharmacy is in growth mode, and we are very pleased to identify a partnership that will reward that growth and allow us to capitalize on our strategic mandates.” said the President of the Pennsylvania LTC pharmacy. “With the structure that Harbor helped us create, our business is going to accelerate rapidly, and we will all benefit. We are very excited to be a part of this new organization.”
Both pharmacies provided excellent service to their customers for decades and will continue to do so. The existing locations and team members will remain in place, helping to maximize value and continue growth while preserving the sellers’ legacy and improving retention through uninterrupted service.
“We are honored to bring both buyer and seller together in this unique partnership that facilitated unlocking liquidity and incorporated future growth for the sellers. We are very excited to watch these prestigious pharmacies grow from the coming wave and capitalize on opportunities that were not previously possible.” said Michael Cammeyer, Managing Director of Harbor Healthcare.
“In 2020, the LTC sector battled significant headwinds. While many subsectors are recovering, there is still more work to be done. As the pandemic recedes, owners can seize some incredible opportunities. Pent up demand, technological advancements and access to unprecedented capital have generated significant tailwinds for LTC pharmacies. The upside opportunities for owners during this time can create generational wealth that presents itself only once in a lifetime. In today’s capital markets, value remains the foremost consideration for a seller in an M&A transaction. Depending on their existing strategy and profile, there can be synergies with buyers that they likely don’t know exist. Owners frequently leave money and opportunity on the table because, and it’s unfortunate, they’re not able to identify their ideal buyer. We are very pleased to bring this acquirer to our client and facilitate the synergies between the two enterprises.” said Mark Alford, Director of Pharmacy Strategy at Harbor Healthcare.
