“For complex negotiations and strategic planning, we rely on DRS to provide leadership that will strengthen our practice. Their extensive experience and knowledge in radiology, combined with business acumen, have helped us adjust to this dynamic market. Ultimately, we trust them to help us make the right decisions.”—Fred Gaschen, Executive Vice President, Radiological Associates of Sacramento (RAS)


Profitability pressures from competitors and a cascading reimbursement environment are causing performance and financial metrics to change for the medical industry and forcing it to embrace new motivations for consolidation and divestiture. We at DRS have the expertise to evaluate the variables and expedite the deal flow involved in a company’s desire to purchase, merge or sell its assets. We pride ourselves in finding the most favorable fit for all involved, creating a win-win for buyer and seller. The value for us as your M & A advisor is in optimizing your transaction for you.
