INNOVETIVE PETCARE ACQUIRES THE VETERINARY REFERRAL HOSPITAL OF HICKORY

Innovetive Petcare, a Texas-based company that owns and operates veterinary practices throughout the U.S., today announced it acquired the veterinary management assets of Veterinary Referral Hospital of Hickory (VRHOH). Founded in 1991, VRHOH has long provided veterinary specialty care for North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee area pets.  Under the terms of the deal, Innovetive Petcare brings its financial, marketing, and administrative prowess to VRHOH to support the practice’s veterinarians as they continue to focus on practicing veterinary medicine.

Veterinary Referral Hospital of Hickory operates 24 hours a day with an always-open emergency and critical care department. Specialty services offered to referred patients include Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Dermatology, and Rehabilitation. VRHOH is also home to an iodine therapy center for the treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats, one of the signature programs that make this hospital an important resource for the region.

Owner Scott R. Helms, DVM DABVP said, “Mark and Paul at Innovetive Pet Care were able to greatly simplify my succession planning. I look forward to continuing to provide excellent care to our referral base through our partnership with Innovetive Petcare.” Dr. Helms illustrates Innovetive Petcare’s premise that veterinarians should be able to pursue their passion for veterinary medicine without sacrificing a healthy work-life balance, burdened by management responsibilities.

The Veterinary Referral Hospital of Hickory’s Hospital Administrator Mike Bridges reports, “I have experienced several sales throughout my 30-year career, some to relieve administrative burden and some for succession planning. Going through this with Innovetive Petcare has been a really positive experience and a good choice for our hospital.” Now, VRHOH has the advantage of Innovetive Petcare’s best-in-class team, tools, and financial resources.

This acquisition solidifies Innovetive’s strong regional position in the southeast, an area where it now operates three leading emergency and specialty hospitals. Mark Ziller, Innovetive Petcare’s President & CEO, says, “We are  very excited to have the Veterinary Referral Hospital of Hickory team join the Innovetive Petcare family, and look forward to supporting their vision and legacy.” Innovetive Petcare seeks to acquire other general and referral veterinary practices as it continues to build the nation’s premier family of veterinary hospitals.

Things That Slow Down The Sale of Your Practice

 

DVM360.com had a good article in the December 2015 issue entitled “3 Practice Sale Slowdowns”:

3 veterinary practice sale slowdowns

A few things are certain: Death, taxes—and the countless ways a practice sale can be brought to a screeching halt.
source-image
Dec 01, 2015

Recently I was contacted by a group of veterinarians who had successfully negotiated an excellent deal to sell a group of practices to one of the large corporate veterinary companies. Based on what they told me then, I explained that it sounded as if everything was well on track and that if price, terms, financing and leasing had all been agreed upon, the closing should be simple and soon.

But alas, I heard from them again about a month later. Apparently, the group’s attorney and CPA were being so slow in preparing schedules and documents that the corporate buyer was threatening to pull out of the deal entirely. This response is understandable; corporate practice purchases tie up the acquirer’s transition staff. These buyers need to schedule their people’s time, so time and timing are of the essence. They have little patience for unjustified delays.

Clearly, negotiating and consummating a practice sale can be difficult for anyone who’s never been through it. And it can sometimes be tough to even identify who or what is holding things up when the transaction begins to stall. Let’s proceed logically through the process involved in a quick and proper clinic sale closing.

Time is money

First and foremost, never forget the reasons why it’s critical to move forward with the least possible delay. There are key time-sensitive realities facing both parties.

Taxes. The clinic building may be part of a capital gain “like-kind” exchange and as such carries with it a severe Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-imposed time limitation for the buyer. The seller may have capital losses he needs to offset in the year the sale occurs. Missing deadlines can simply kill the sale for tax reasons.

Financing rate. Banks and other lending institutions don’t commit to loans indefinitely. If some CPA or lawyer slows down the closing such that a loan commitment expires, it can result in more than an inconvenience. A rate hike can make it economically impossible for the buyer to go forward with the purchase.

End of employee contracts. Many practice sales are contingent on the selling clinic having a full veterinary staff at closing. When ownership is about to change hands, employees of all categories begin to get nervous—that edginess can result in staff seeking employment elsewhere and DVMs hesitating to fulfill or renew their employment contracts.

The usual suspects

Second, once we understand the need for speed in finalizing a practice sale, we need to identify what’s most likely to slow things down. Here are my usual suspects:

Lending institution paperwork. Often closings are delayed because banks and banks’ attorneys don’t concern themselves adequately with the importance of thoroughness. Financial institutions loan money day-in-day-out, and one deal looks a lot like the last 10. When a document or a deed goes missing, it can take a long time for bankers even to let folks know that something is missing.

CPAs and accounting assistants. When you schedule a practice sale on or near March 15 (subchapter S tax return deadline), April 15 (personal income tax return deadline), Oct. 15 (personal tax return extension deadline) or after mid-November, expect delays and confusion from your accountant. She is dealing with a barrage of last-minute documents pouring in from procrastinators and also, in December, employees calling in sick to do holiday shopping and party planning.

Lawyers. A lot of law offices operate like squirrels. They take in all the work that comes along in preparation for the leaner times they may face in the future. They’re not always equipped to work diligently on all matters that suddenly demand immediate attention. If yours is one of those matters, look out.

Don’t hate the player, know the game

Third, you as a buyer or seller have the power to speed things up by being proactive. You can genuinely own the transaction by learning what has to happen to get it done. Here are some examples of issues a buyer and seller need to work through with their respective legal and financial teams early in the clinic sale process:

Equipment and employee schedules. Don’t wait for your advisers (or the other side’s advisers) to ask you for the business documents and information they’ll need to prepare closing papers. Make a list at the outset. They might require, among other things:

> Employee lists

> Copies of DVM employment contracts

> Schedules of earned but unpaid vacation and sick time

> Approximate inventory

> Equipment model numbers, age, condition and depreciation status

> Accounts receivable.

Tax returns. Profit-and-loss statements and tax returns are often annexed to purchase agreements. Find out how many are needed and by whom and get them where they belong.

Corporate documents. If your practice operates as a PC or LLC, you likely will need proof that you are legally entitled to dispose of your clinic and its assets and real estate. This involves preparing a board resolution or other paperwork. Don’t wait until the evening before the closing to discover that you can’t find your corporate or LLC kit, seal, stock certificates, board resolutions and so on.

Leases and deeds. The buyer may need to negotiate new terms with your landlord or at least satisfy himself that your lease is assignable. It’s pretty hard to do that if you can’t supply your landlord’s contact information and copies of past leases. And don’t forget: You should give your landlord a heads-up that you’re selling your practice. If the landlord has been secretly waiting for you to leave, he or she may have another tenant in mind, and that will send the whole transaction into a hurricane.

Occupancy permits, zoning restrictions, municipal ordinances. Absolutely, positively discover whether you need any variances or approvals from the municipality where the clinic you plan to sell or buy is located. Nothing can slow up a deal like an ordinance officer or town zoning board. If you wait to discover that three public hearings need to be scheduled before your practice can change hands, you’d better get familiar with the hearing schedule for the village or city in question. And don’t be surprised when a scheduled meeting is postponed or your matter is put on hold pending the village getting an engineer’s opinion or other information before voting on your application.

Ultimately, you may be the No. 1 factor to prevent a sale from coming to a screeching halt: Push for an expeditious close, identify slow-movers and be proactive to avoid becoming the problem.

Ever wanted to do something else with your life?

Career Change

Hospital owners who manage a veterinary practice for a decade or more demonstrate unquestionable dedication to their calling. Still, at some point, many feel a subtle yearning to do meaningful work in a different vocation. The result is a tension between that thought and the resolve to remain true to a life of serving people and animals.

Career changes for veterinarians are a growing trend
In fact, Dr. Valerie E. Ragan, Director of the Center for Public and Corporate Veterinary Medicine at the Virginia- Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, provides workshops and other resources for veterinarians who are thinking of a career change. In a recent AVMA article*, she states, “We get a lot of contact from veterinarians who are looking into doing something different, but they still want to be veterinarians, and they don’t have any idea what’s out there or where to start.” She goes on to say, “Another group is veterinarians who have been in practice 25 years or longer and want to do something different for fun, to give back, or to travel.”

Practice owners face two significant obstacles

Time Constraints
Veterinarians in practices today wear many hats as clinicians. Clients expect general practitioners to have extensive knowledge about numerous species and breeds along with expertise in every clinical discipline from radiology to nutrition.

Practice owners carry the additional demands of managing a veterinary business in a changing economic climate.

One survey conducted by the National Commission of Veterinary Economic Issues reported, “… owner vets spent an average of 18 hours per week on practice management tasks”

Freedom to Explore
Unrestricted time and money are two essential ingredients for a lifestyle of freedom.

Many practice owners maintain large non-liquid equity, but don’t know their options for tapping into that wealth.

So, what are some options?

  • Spending a lot of time and cash finding a good practice manager could solve the time factor, but not the non-liquid equity.
  • Sell your practice and take the leap to another endeavor that may or may not work out well.
  • Delay a change until you’re older and, hopefully, in a better financial position.

What if you could free up time and cash while practicing your way in your hospital?

• Would you spend more time with family?
• Would you volunteer for a cause you care about?
• Would you explore ways to work part-time at home and build something to carry on after retirement?
• Would you like to fill in the blank?

Good news: many of your colleagues have found a way to gain that kind of freedom with the help of a corporate buyer.

  • Diversify your assets by investing your equity in whatever way suits your situation.
  • Create time in your life. Leave inventory management, staff training, payroll, accounting, marketing and all that business stuff to business professionals.
  • Fulfill your number one calling. Focus more than ever on practicing quality medicine.
  • Reduce staff turnover. Less stress means a happier office culture, and reduced potential for burnout.
  • Discover new interests. Expand your possibilities.
  • Release some creativity in your life.
  • Leverage the power of a qualified team of management experts and eliminate anxiety about the future.

Conclusion
Maybe the thought of doing something different with your untapped skills and wisdom has been lurking in the back of your mind for a while. Maybe you’d like to explore a little more deeply what the possibilities are for you. There’s really nothing to lose by taking a look at becoming a corporate-owned hospital. But, there could be a lot to miss by putting it off.

Are You Waiting Too Long to Sell Your Practice?

Waiting Too Long To Sell

Selling your veterinary practice may be the most important financial decision you make in your professional life. While many factors are involved in a decision to sell, one frequently gets overlooked: timing.

Is there a “best time” to sell?
Maximizing sale value is usually near the top of every owner’s list. So how do you pinpoint the “best time” to sell to command the best price for your business? The first step is to understand the components that influence valuation – as well as the extent to which you may be able to leverage them to your advantage. These variables include:

  1. The current economic environment and dynamics of the veterinary industry;
  2. The current conditions of capital markets; and
  3. The performance of the practice.

Keep in mind that factors outside your control, like current economic and capital market conditions, may have as large a bearing as more controllable factors, such as revenues or profits, on how the sale turns out.

We are currently in a “seller’s market”
Today’s economic environment of historically low interest rates and readily available capital makes it relatively easy and affordable for buyers to purchase clinics. Add to this mix another favorable dynamic: increased demand for clinics by corporate buyers. The result? Healthy valuations for some veterinary clinics.

However, like any trend, market cycles can and will change. If history is any guide, changes, when they occur, often happen without warning.

An increase in interest rates, tightening of the money supply, or downturn in the economy could have a strong negative impact on a clinic’s valuation. These variables all are outside a business owner’s control.

How to seize the “window” of opportunity
There are ways to help protect a business from value-influencing factors outside your control. Planning ahead to provide a window of opportunity to time the sale is one such management tool.

For instance, if you know you would like to retire or need liquidity in five years, now is the time to start positioning your clinic for sale and making any necessary improvements to the practice. At the two- to three-year mark, if things are going well, and you are able to obtain a good price for your business, you can sell a little early. Conversely, if the economy or business has hit a rough patch, you still have several more years until your original target date to ride out the down cycle and/or make additional improvements to the clinic. But if you wait until close to the five-year mark to start the sales process, you lose the flexibility to adapt to business cycle swings or unexpected events.

Recognizing common delay reasons for delaying
Owners may delay the sale of their practice for any number of reasons. Common ones we hear include:

  • I’m too busy running my practice. I don’t have time to think about selling!
  • I’ve made substantial investments in my practice. I want to wait to sell until after I realize the full value of those investments.
  • My practice is going gangbusters! Let’s talk about selling when growth starts to plateau.
  • I need to focus on some things that I am doing to make this practice more appealing to buyers before I sell.
  • I don’t know the first thing about selling my practice.

These reasons all are understandable. However, since we know that delaying a potential sale may have a significant negative impact to the seller, let’s look further at each potential reason for delaying a sale:

“I’m too busy running my practice. I don’t have time to think about selling!”
An experienced corporate buyer understands the demands on a practice owner’s time and has the experienced team available to assist the seller at each step of the way without placing additional burdens on an already strained schedule.  You want a partner in the process…a buyer willing to invest time and resources to guide you through the process, not only shouldering the workload, but also sharing information and advice along the way.  Even if a practice owner chooses not to sell, he or she will gain valuation information about the value of their clinic, how potential buyers value practices, and steps to take to increase the value should they choose to sell at a later time.

“I’ve made substantial investments in my practice. I want to wait to sell until after I realize the full value of those investments.”
An experienced buyer can tell the difference between clinics that continually re-invest in the practice and those that don’t…and places a higher value on clinics that have invested for future growth.  Keep in mind that a buyer is looking for a clinic that is positioned to continue growing in the future.  If you have been making investments in your clinic, that benefits you when it is time to sell.

“My practice is going gangbusters! Let’s talk about selling when growth starts to plateau.”
A potential buyer wants a clinic that is both doing well today and has the opportunity to continue growing and do well in the future. A clinic with a history of growth that can demonstrate a strong likelihood of continued growth will command a higher price than a clinic whose revenue is flat or declining. Therefore, waiting to sell until your clinic has peaked is not a good strategy for maximizing its sale price.

“I need to focus on some things that I am doing to make this practice more appealing to buyers before I sell.”
Sometimes it does take some work to position a clinic to sell for the best possible value.  However, frequently we find that practice owners do not fully understand what potential buyers value most in a potential sale and consequently focus on the wrong items.  If you are considering a sale, speaking to an experienced buyer now can help learn the value of your clinic today, issues that may need to be addressed, and where to prioritize your time and efforts.

“I don’t know the first thing about selling my practice.”
Most veterinarians sell a practice at most once in their career, so the experience can be new and intimidating.  You want to find a potential buyer that will be a partner in the process and willing to invest time educating you on the process and all of your options. The right buyer will have deep experience in helping practice owners with evaluating their options, completing transactions, and successfully handling post-sale transitions.

Conclusion
Ultimately, it is nearly impossible to predict the “best” time to sell, especially since only some factors that influence price are within an owner’s control. But taking steps to prepare for sale by planning ahead ultimately provides significant upside flexibility – especially if you run a strong, growing practice. Start a dialogue now to discover the value of your clinic. And, if you are able to obtain a good price, weigh the trade-offs of selling now versus the risks of unfavorable market changes that may cause you to miss your opportunity to get the most for your business.

Not All Buyers Are Created Equal

Charles Darwin once wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” In the rapidly evolving business of veterinary medicine, as practice owners struggle to juggle work-life balance, training and career development, clinical practice, and business management, it does seem that the law of survival of the fittest applies.

Enlisting the support of a corporate buyer to meet the demands is an attractive option, but how do you know which buyer to work with?  While there is the typical list of demands (fair valuation, option to purchase or lease real estate, cash at closing, strong team support and financial backing), we’ve curated an additional checklist for savvy practice owners to use when filtering their choices:

Personalized Approach
Determining the value of what you do is not a simple equation: every veterinary practice is different. Look for a corporate buyer that offers a customized approach to not only acquisition, but also improving practice operations. You want a personal consultation and a comprehensive evaluation of your operations, as well as a customized plan and guidance for the implementation of strategies that are specifically designed to improve performance at your hospital.

Local Medical Standards
What works well for a 5 doctor practice in Bloomington, Illinois might not work well for a single doctor practice in Malibu, California.  Veterinary medicine is best practiced when local veterinarians craft their own hospital and community specific strategies for high quality patient care. Avoid corporate buyers that utilize a single standardized national plan or formulary.

Focus on Revenue Growth and Increased Efficiency, not Cutting Costs
When your practice is operating at its best, clients and employees are happier, patients receive better care and your bottom line thrives. Choose a corporate buyer that can demonstrate a broad range of proven operational consulting services to the veterinary industry that are proven to grow revenue, including:

  • General and specialty practice management training and mentorship
  • Inventory management assistance
  • Fee schedule review
  • Marketing program development
  • Doctor production analysis
  • Staff training and development
  • Human resources management and recruiting services
  • IT support consultation

Commitment to Uphold the Values and Culture of the Clinic
You did not spend your career building a practice that is going to be radically changed once you sell it. Your hospital means the world to you. It’s been your life’s work and a labor of love.  Choose a corporate buyer who will honor the values and culture of your clinic that are beneficially to the pets, the clients, and the staff. Look for a corporate buyer, like Innovetive Petcare, that works with veterinarian owners who want to continue running the medical side of their practices, but want help with the day-to-day administrative and team management tasks. Enlist a corporate buyer that will help you create a long-term strategy and a sustainable way for your practice to continue thriving — well into the future.  The relationship should feel natural and should uphold the values that you built into your practice, and also should allow you more time, more money, and the ability to focus on what you love the most.
