Gastroenterology deals have been accelerating, with eight closed transactions in Q4 2020 and another eight already closed (as of Jan 19) in 2021. We believe this will be a very big year for GI.

Transaction sizes have been mixed recently between large and small deals. On the large side, Waud Capital Partners-backed GI Alliance acquired Digestive Health Associates of Texas (48 physicians). Assured Healthcare Partners acquired Allied Digestive Health, a 65-physician platform.

At the same time, GI alliance completed two more add-on deals with one- and five-physician practices. Webster Equity Partners-backed One GI, HIG Capital’s Pinnacle GI Partners, and Webster Equity Partners’ One GI have also completed smaller add-ons deals recently.
