Here is the link to the bill. You will see that licensed medical professionals have been carved out and are not included in or protected by this new law.

Today is the Last Day for Early Rate Registration – Live Webinar June 8th! The Ins and Outs of Selling Your Private Practice


Live interactive webinar 6.8.2017 7:30-9:30 PM EST

If you envision a time when you will sell your practice, never forget that the best way to build a practice is to build it as if you’re going to sell it. It has to be built to last.

The sale of your practice should start long before it is announced publicly. Proper preparation is essential.
Not since the consolidation in our industry back in the 90’s has there been so much interest in therapy practice sales, mergers and consolidations.  Regardless of whom you might end up selling to, two points to always keep in mind are that (1) anything that increases the volume or the security of future revenue will increase the value of your practice, and (2) what makes your practice valuable to you will make it valuable to a buyer.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the specific criteria used to determine the valuation of a practice, including EBITDA, goodwill, infrastructure etc. and what are viewed as value makers versus value takers in the industry.
2) Understand the steps necessary  to prepare your practice to bring it to market and when to get this process started
3) Find out the financial preparation and forms you need to have in place and for review during   due diligence
4) Discuss differences between an outright acquisition, merger, and structured buy in and what determines the best fit for your scenario
5)  Discuss the pros and cons of using a broker or intermediary and what makes a qualified buyer
6)  See what you need to do so that you can answer the #1 question: “Can this practice exist without you?”
7)  Understand the steps necessary in selling a practice including non disclosure agreements (NDA), letters of intent (LOI) and purchase agreements.

This webinar is to take the angst out of selling a practice and present the information in user friendly, logical steps. The issue will be presented from both the perspective of the buyer and the seller. Live Q/A!

This webinar is presented by Iris Kimberg, MS PT OTR
CEO of NYTherapyguide.com who, on her own, sold her therapy agency in a multi million $ deal to a Fortune 500 company. She has worked on valuations of many  practices and helped sell over a dozen OT PT and ST practices in the last 7 years.

If you cannot make the live webinar, you will be able to access the recorded version 24/7/365.  All registrants will have access to the recording.
Ask questions live.  Watch from your home on your desktop, laptop, ipad or smart phone. Iris has presented this material for the APTA PPS conference and privately to over 300 therapists.

Today is the last day for early rate registration.
