Analyzing Financial Exits and Operational Performance in Digital Health (mini-report)


With a significant influx of $232B in venture capital across more than 17,500 funding deals and approximately 1,200 exits encompassing mergers and acquisitions (M&A), initial public offerings (IPOs), and Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) activities, the Digital Health sector showcases both enthusiasm and pragmatism. This mini report titled ‘Exits and Operational Performance in Digital Health’ delves into this thriving landscape, where ventures navigate a substantial funding inflow and myriad exit avenues, reflecting the sector’s dynamic evolution.

As Digital Health matures, ventures are reconsidering strategies. Some are repositioning for potential exits, seeking avenues for growth and evolution within this dynamic landscape.

A pivotal focus of this analysis is investors’ returns within the Digital Health sphere. This mini report examines the concept of MOIC (Multiple on Invested Capital) to gauge if higher MOIC figures align with superior operational execution.

Key Insights

  • As of 2023 YTD, the global Digital Health ecosystem boasts over 10,100 active, private ventures, experiencing a 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 2% since 2019. These ventures have attracted a cumulative total of $232B in venture capital funding across more than 17,500 deals, showcasing the sector’s sustained growth and financial traction.
  • Venture exits in the Digital Health realm witnessed a surge, peaking in 2021 with a total of 287 exits reported. However, in 2023 YTD, the exit volume has notably decreased by 47%, with 153 exits reported (comprising 147 M&As, 5 IPOs, and 1 SPAC). This decline in exit volume prompts a closer examination of the sector’s current dynamics and exit trends.
  • Analyzing ventures with acquisition deal values ≥$50M from 2022-2023 YTD reveals intriguing insights. The median indicative MOIC of these ventures stands at 4.1, shedding light on the financial performance of ventures within this specific acquisition value threshold. Notably, 36% of ventures exiting via M&A in the last two years have achieved at least a 5x multiple of invested capital, emphasizing strong returns within this subset of ventures.
