AmSurg takes $7.6B TeamHealth bid off the table: 4 things to know

AmSurg’s $7.6 billion takeover bid for physician outsourcing services company TeamHealth had a deadline of Tuesday at 4 p.m., but the surgery center company withdrew the offer approximately a day ahead of the deadline, according to The New York Times

Here are four things to know.

1. TeamHealth said AmSurg’s cash-and-stock offer still undervalued the company, leading AmSurg to retract the offer, according to the report.

2. If the transaction had taken place, AmSurg and TeamHealth would have each owned 50 percent of the combined entity.

3. Both companies recently closed acquisitions of their own. TeamHealth acquired IPC Healthcare for $1.6 billion, and AmSurg acquired Sheridan Healthcare for $2.3 billion.

4. The additional $4 per share in the latest, and now defunct, offer from AmSurg was aimed to compensate for any potential penalties from financing the IPC Healthcare transaction, according to the report.
