BofA/Merrill thoughts on Community Health exploring strategic alternatives
According to Bloomberg, Community Health is exploring strategic options, including a potential sale of the company. BofA/Merrill analyst Kevin Fischbeck does not view public companies as a good strategic fit for Community Health as many are focused on larger urban hospitals or prefer smaller deals. Fischbeck said other options include a private equity acquisition, a sale-leaseback to a REIT, or combination of the two. The analyst said Community Health's fundamentals have been weak, which is the biggest factor in doing a deal now as it be hard to lever company or do a sales/leaseback without better visibility into cash flows. Fischback rates Community Health an Underperform with a $10 price target.
