New York, NY – September 24, 2008

New York, NY (July 30, 2008) – The Collaborative Communications Summit (CCS), Health Technology Investment Forum, announces an exclusive pre-conference webinar addressing the future of health IT M&A. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24th at 2:00pm EST. It will be hosted by Dave Cummings, Managing Partner of Agile Equity.

The session entitled “The Next Wave of Healthcare M&A” will highlight the key considerations when evaluating a strategic transaction. For firms considering a possible divestment or acquisition strategy this highly informative webinar will shed light on current market conditions, competitive landscape, buy/sell side issues and the transaction process. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during this engaging and informative presentation.

“Middle Market Healthcare transactions continue to dominate the industry given the limited large transaction activity from the tight credit markets. Healthcare M&A deals will remain steady through the second half of the year, since strategic acquirers and private equity firms are still willing buyers with plenty of capital to allocate,” said Dave Cummings, Managing Director of Agile Equity. “Foreign buyers will continue to play an increasing role in healthcare transactions, boosted by overall global growth and a weak dollar.”
