P3 Health Partners Investment Highlights
- Empowering Value-Based Care: Founded and led by physicians, P3 is a team of doctors, clinicians and support service professionals with a shared passion for delivering value-based care. P3 is dedicated to transforming healthcare for patients, providers, and payors with a proven physician-affiliated model that delivers high-quality, low-cost care to Medicare Advantage members.
- Large Addressable Market for Medicare Advantage Patients: Substantial market opportunity to partner with physicians & payors that serve the 60 million estimated Medicare eligible beneficiaries in P3’s rapidly growing core $300 billion Medicare Advantage Market. P3 currently operates in 11 markets across four states and expects to add three to five new markets annually to drive 35% patient growth over the long-term through a mix of payor and provider opportunities.
- Rapidly Scalable, Capital-Light Model: P3’s capital efficient growth approach leverages the existing installed physician base across the U.S., which enables accelerated market entry while maintaining the preexisting patient and physician relationship. P3 enters markets with payor and provider partnerships to rapidly scale member growth while developing a full network of primary care, specialty, and ancillary providers.
- Experienced Management Team: P3 was founded and is led by one of the most experienced management teams in population health. The core management team has a 20-year track record with deep value-based care expertise and a proven ability to build and scale value-based care platforms.
“Today marks an important milestone in our mission to transform healthcare for patients, providers, and payors through value-based care,” said Sherif Abdou, CEO of P3. “We have the right team and delivery model to help physicians and payors accelerate the move to value-based care within a growing market for Medicare beneficiaries. As a public company, we will continue to provide a differentiated approach to patient care for all key stakeholders while delivering proven care outcomes and enhancing patient and provider satisfaction.”
Greg Wasson, Chairman of Foresight, said: “We are incredibly excited to partner with P3 and help drive the next phase of its growth. The P3 management team has deep value-based care expertise and a proven track record for addressing some of the largest challenges in healthcare today. Their innovative, patient-centered, and physician-led care model enables the delivery of high-quality care at scale while aligning physician incentives to drive improved outcomes and reduce medical costs. We look forward to partnering closely with them on this exciting next chapter as a public company.”
As part of the transaction, Mark Thierer is expected to become the Chairman of the public company’s board. Mr. Thierer is a recognized leader in the healthcare industry with more than 30 years of experience leading organizations to financial and operational success. He was previously Chairman and CEO of Catamaran, selling the business for $12.8 billion to OptumRx in 2015. Mark went on to serve as CEO of OptumRx for two years post-acquisition and led the successful integration of the businesses. Mr. Thierer commented, “I’m very excited about serving as Chairman of P3 and working closely with the leadership team to build the population health market leader.”
The combined company will have an estimated post-transaction enterprise value of $2.3 billion with an estimated equity value of $2.4 billion from the contribution of at least $180 million in cash proceeds from the transaction. Proceeds will consist of up to $316 million of cash held in Foresight’s trust account, assuming no redemptions by Foresight’s public stockholders, and an additional fully committed private investment of over $200 million at $10.00 per share, including participation from funds and accounts managed by Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC and Janus Henderson Investors.
The net proceeds raised from the transaction will be used to support P3’s working capital and accelerate the national expansion of its proven platform.
