Universal Health Seeks Acquisitions

Universal Health Services Inc. (NYSE:UHS) seeks acquisitions. "I think that -- I know how we do it. We want to be opportunistic. I remember some years ago, some of the companies that may not be around -- smaller companies -- to talk to audiences like this, they would talk about making six acquisitions a year. And then an analyst would multiply whatever they wanted by six, and it would be a wonderful thing. Well, I always thought that that was not the way to do it. Because, if you want to keep your word -- and that's one thing we do -- then you're forced, towards the end of the year, if you've only made four, you have to make two acquisitions, regardless of whether they make sense or not. So, that's -- we never did that. And people said, well, how many are you going to make? And we said, we're opportunistic. If we see something that makes sense, in the right market, in the right demand as we see it going forward, we'll make the acquisition. We always keep our powder dry. We certainly have -- we're generating a lot of cash. We have extensive bank lines. We have the trust of the financial community; banking community. So, if we see something that is attractive, we can do it. And we've done it in the past, as you point out. And, again, it's got to be something that is an area that we've been interested in, at the right time, at the right location. The price, as well. But we're looking at the future of whatever we buy. And in that regard, we went to the UK. And at that time it was the Thatcher administration. They were trying to do a lot of privatization. It didn't work out. We sold at a profit," said Alan Miller, Universal Health Services, Inc. - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
