Study: Healthcare execs rely on acquisitions

A new study suggests that M&A activity plays a key role in the business strategies of many providers. The study surveyed 529 senior-level finance decisions makers, including 33 from the healthcare industry. Among those executives, 46 percent said that their companies felt acquisitions played some role, and 9 percent a major role, in the way they ran their business. For nearly half, building market share was the biggest reason for doing the deal. Interestingly, given the turmoil in the financial markets today, 73 percent said that recent changes in market capital wouldn't affect their M&A strategy.
