Investing in Brazilian Healthcare is theme of event in New York

 Infocast will premiere their Investing in Brazilian Healthcare Summit from November 15 – 16, 2011 at the Concierge Conference Center in New York, NY. The summit promises an in-depth examination of the most active and lucrative healthcare sectors in Brazil, including the pharmaceutical, hospital, health insurance, clinical laboratory, medical equipment and drugstore sectors.

The market

Brazil is witnessing an increasing upper-lower social class, changing the healthcare services configuration. This increased demand is impacting the volume of pharmaceutical needs and hospital procedures and creating an ideal environment for massive investments and deals in the healthcare market.

Numbers

The Brazilian healthcare sector earned revenues of $22.1 billion in 2009 and is projected to reach $129.9 billion by 2012 — a 35 percent growth in 3 years — 4.1 percent above global market growth, according to a Frost & Sullivan report. However, global investors face complex legal challenges specific to the Brazilian healthcare market. Without the correct interpretation of Brazilian law and a thorough understanding of how to structure investment and M&A deals, foreign investors limit their chances of success. Therefore, it is critical for investors to understand how to meet the specific criteria established by Brazil’s National Development Bank (BNDES) to access the $3.75 billion made available for financing healthcare through 2012.

Who will be there

Speakers include: ANAHP — National Association of Private Hospitals, DMBranco Healthcare Investments and Advisory, Correia da Silva Advogados Associados, Eurasia Group, Micromar Solutions to Neurosurgery, Roche Diagnostica, Logika Consultores Associados and many more.
