Two more OMS IDSOs were launched last week, one national and one regional. OMS consolidation bidders now 15+, some with better strategies than others. I predict one of these new ones will soar and one will flounder.

The two new OMS IDSOs launched last week are very different. One was started by an OMS doctor and a bank credit line with ZERO multi-site healthcare consolidation experience. No professional money, just the doctor. The other new OMS IDSO is backed by the most successful Private Equity group in dentistry which has returned over $2.0 billion in profits to doctors and investors in multiple IDSO start/build/monetize transactions over the last 12 years. They have a brilliant strategy for which we offered to invest $5.0 million of OUR money.
