Case 1 : Healthcare Services Industry
A large private equity fund was contemplating an investment in the hospital sector in China. The client commissioned CIC to conduct research on current regulations, competitive landscape, profitability, and growth outlook. Here are some of the key questions:
- What is the current status of the development of China’s private hospital industry?
- What policies and regulations are in connection with private hospitals?
- Are there any sizable foreign hospital groups in China? And what is the progress of their business development in China?
- What are some of the key success factors and which department or region has the greatest growth potential?
Based on client’s needs, CIC identified and recommended 12 experts, including private medical institution executives, foreign private hospital executives, and members of regulatory bodies and industry associations. Our client ultimately selected eight experts for consultation. Among them, two experts accompanied the client to conduct onsite due diligence on a target hospital, offering professional advice on its performance beyond financial figures.
Owning to CIC’s deep understanding of the healthcare services industry, CIC was able to identify qualified experts with minimal guidance, which enabled the client to gain a comprehensive understanding of the industry and make sound investment decisions.
