The Company anticipates closing this transaction in the third quarter of 2023 and will fund the transaction with cash on hand.
As part of the acquisition, Carlos Palacios, M.D., President of TIP, will join ApolloMed as the Chief Medical Officer for Texas and spearhead clinical initiatives for providers. Vincent Roth, co-founder and Executive Director of TIP, will join ApolloMed as the Group Vice President of Operations for Texas and lead the continued growth and development of ApolloMed’s Texas network.
