Accounts Receivable Management Industry Report
2013 Midyear Review

Regulatory and economic changes are having a direct correlation to the way that credit grantors, collection agencies, debt buyers, collection law firms and vendors are running their businesses. In many instances, compliance trumps performance across major market segments as the new age of regulatory oversight sets in, while the economy continues to recover from the worst setback since the Great Depression. Recovery managers and ARM companies alike are revamping established practices to adapt to the "new world order" that is being imposed upon them.

Our Q2 2012 report provides M&A and related market trend overviews for the Accounts Receivable Management (ARM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) industries, which comprise Kaulkin Ginsberg’s OBS sector. This report also offers an update on regulatory trends from Rozanne Andersen, Esq., and an article from Mike Ginsberg on how owners can avoid pitfalls when negotiating a deal directly with a buyer prospect.
" Ready, Set, Deal!” was the rallying cry of buyers and sellers in the OBS markets as the volume of completed transactions in Q1 2012 reached their highest level in the past year with 21 deals completed representing almost $700 million in deal value. By comparison, only 8 transactions representing less than $100 million in deal value were completed in Q1 2011. " Learn More
For the most part, buyers gravitated toward strong performing companies in growth markets (e.g., Healthcare), and underperforming companies with good clients and synergistic cost savings. Deal activity peaked in Q3, but declined again in Q4 as the holidays slowed down due diligence and companies started to focus on strategic planning for 2012.
In the third quarter of 2011, the number of mergers and acquisitions in the accounts receivable
management (ARM) industry kept pace with deal activity during the same period a year earlier, but total transaction value well exceeded totals from Q3 2010, according to Kaulkin Ginsberg Company, the leading M&A and strategic advisory firm in the outsourced business services sector.
