With the national healthcare reforms the healthcare industry in New Jersey and around the country is changing. In the past few months, this blog has discussed recent mergers between different New Jersey healthcare facilities. These hospitals are hopeful that these complex business transactions can streamline operations and make the system more efficient and cost effective without sacrificing patient care.
There are a number of complex business transactions that businesses can choose to be a part of. In particular, when a business is looking to grow, it has a couple of options. A business can start new operations from scratch. To do this, businesses will need to build, purchase and develop new operations to accompany their existing set up. Or, businesses that want to grow can enter into an acquisition agreement with an already existing business. By acquiring a new business, New Jersey businesses can increase their size while taking advantage of an already functioning business set up.

The so-called Great Recession caused some to worry as businesses were forced to lay off workers or shut their doors completely. However, recent data from New Jersey has suggested that people are much more optimistic about the economy for the first time in years. This had led people to consider business formation or expansion of their current operations.
