- Signify, a technology-driven value-based care enabler, could draw interest from both private equity and managed care providers, the report said.
Catch up fast: Signify raised $564 million in its February 2021 IPO.
- Almost per year to the date following its public market debut, Signify struck a $250 million deal to get Caravan Health, which includes accountable care organizations in order to take risks and curb Medicare spending.
- Last month, Signify unveiled plans to wind down its Episodes division and leave a bundled payment program, saying it planned to spotlight its profitable and growing home and community services division, plus Caravan.
By the numbers: Signify shares popped on the news headlines, pushing its market cap to about $4.5 billion, but are down slightly today.
- That’s down from the market capitalization of $7.12 billion when it debuted on the general public markets this past year.
