What to Know About Selling a Medical Spa To Private Equity

True North Mergers & Acquisitions

August 29, 2023

As the owner of a medical spa, you've established a unique space that's capturing the attention of an increasing number of private equity investors. If you've been thinking about cashing in on your investment, looking closely at the factors private equity firms assess when evaluating your medical spa, could pay off in the long run.

Focus on Growth, Not Just Numbers

Private equity firms are driven by growth potential—not just financial figures. Ensure your medical spa's strategy aligns with the buyer’s growth-oriented mindset. When your strategy aligns with theirs, you're paving the way to make your medical spa an attractive opportunity for them.

Three- to Five-Year Plans Matter

Private equity investors play the long game, so it is important to have a three- to five-year plan that lays out your vision. This isn't about showing off; it's about giving potential buyers confidence in your ability to steer the ship and seize upcoming prospects.

Showcase What Makes You Unique

Standing out from the crowd is essential. Your business has that special something that sets it apart, right? So talk about it. Whether it's cutting-edge services, a client-focused approach, or streamlined operations, highlight it. Demonstrate that you have that distinct “something” that makes competitors think, "Why didn't we come up with that?"

Follow the Rules. Stay Compliant.

Regulations matter. And compliance carries weight. From your company structure to client privacy and accurate billing, compliance strengthens your reputation and fosters trust. Uphold compliance standards, and you’ll make a positive impression on potential buyers.

Retain Employees

Do you have exceptional staff? Then hang onto them. Private equity firms value a solid plan for attracting and retaining top talent. It's not just about having skilled professionals; it's about showcasing your ability to retain them.

Maintain Solid Financial Records

Ensure your financial records are organized and transparent. Buyers will want a clear picture of your medical spa's financial health, revenue streams, and profitability. Providing accurate and detailed financial statements can instill confidence in potential buyers.

Implement a Customer Retention Strategy

Showcase your strategies for retaining existing clients. A loyal client base attracts buyers, providing a steady revenue stream and a foundation for future growth.

Build a Strong Marketing and Branding Strategy

Present your medical spa's branding and marketing efforts. A strong brand and effective marketing strategies can enhance the perceived value of your business and demonstrate your ability to attract and retain clients.

Ensure a Smooth Transition

Offer a plan for a smooth transition of ownership. Assure potential buyers that you will provide support during the transition phase to ensure continuity and a seamless experience for clients.
