12 digital health mergers and acquisitions from Q2 2019, plus 5 IPOs
With 12 deals, the second quarter of 2019 was lighter on M&A than some, but the acquisitions that did happen were major — like UnitedHealth Group acquiring PatientsLikeMe, Allscripts snapping up ZappRx, and even a small quiet Apple acquisition (which came to light this quarter but likely occurred before then).
And mergers and acquisitions weren’t the only exits happening this quarter. Much more buzz has surrounded the return of the digital health IPO, with five companies filing or announcing their intention to do so.
Read on for a recap of M&A in 2019, and below that a roundup of IPOs. As usual, we’ll list acquisitions in descending order of deal size, then chronologically, though this quarter hardly any of the deals we covered had price tags disclosed.
