Investors Bullish on Healthcare M&A, More at iiBIG Forum

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 12, 2008) - Healthcare investors, deal-makers, and industry executives will take advantage of opportunities presented at iiBIG's upcoming Investment and M&A Opportunities in Healthcare, scheduled for January 27-28, 2009 at the Nashville Convention Center in Tennessee.

The 2009 forum will occur at a time for investors and other deal-makers seeking lucrative gains in the dynamic healthcare market. And with a brand-new Administration office in Washington, attendees will hear from knowledgeable insiders on what to expect in terms of healthcare policy, and how it will affect deal-making in this sector. Over 40 top-tier executives will speak at this year's event, including such organizations and firms as the Nashville Healthcare Council, National Renal Alliance, CCMP Capital Advisors, The Carlyle Group, UBS and much more.

As 2008 comes to a close and, despite the crisis that plagued the capital markets, deal value and activity in the healthcare markets continues to increase. The historically low dollar, coupled with downward pressure on valuations, has created many attractive opportunities in the U.S. market. The three sectors with the highest deal value in the Q3:08:

Medical Devices: 32 deals, worth $525.80 million
Biotechnology: 18 deals, $468.20 million
Pharmaceuticals: 19 deals, $430.43 million
