Dresner Partners Advised The Advanced IVF Institute on its Sales to CCRM Fertility
CHICAGO – August 1, 2023 – Dresner Partners, an award-winning, FINRA-registered middle-market investment bank and Mergers Alliance member firm, is pleased to announce that it advised The Advanced IVF Institute on its sale to CCRM Fertility, a global pioneer in fertility treatment, research and science. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Advanced IVF Institute, with 42 employees and two offices in the Chicagoland area, including Naperville and Park Ridge, Illinois, is led by Dr. Charles E. Miller, an internationally renowned expert in the treatment of infertility and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. The Advanced IVF Institute’s experienced clinical staff provide cutting edge assisted reproductive technology services such as preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), in vitro fertilization (IVF), egg freezing, sperm banking, embryo storage, and minimally invasive gynecologic treatments.

Founded by Dr. William Schoolcraft more than 35 years ago, CCRM Fertility specializes in the most advanced fertility treatments, with deep expertise in IVF, fertility testing, egg freezing, PGT, third party reproduction and egg donation. CCRM Fertility leverages its own data and a dedicated team of in-house reproductive endocrinologists, embryologists and geneticists to deliver industry-leading outcomes. CCRM Fertility proudly serves 16 metropolitan areas with 37 locations in North America, including Atlanta, Boston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Delaware, Denver, Houston, New Jersey, New York, Northern Virginia, Minneapolis, Orange County, the San Francisco Bay Area, Toronto, and Washington D.C.

Commenting on the transaction, Dr. Charles E. Miller said, “I would like to thank the Dresner team for their expertise, professionalism and competitive process, which led us to achieve a great outcome with CCRM Fertility. The Advanced IVF Institute and CCRM Fertility share a strong commitment to delivering first-class reproductive services to patients and I’m excited about the long-term potential of our new partnership.”

Mitchell Stern, Managing Director and Head of the Healthcare Group at Dresner Partners said, “We enjoyed working closely with Dr. Miller and the rest of The Advanced IVF Institute team. Both organizations are closely aligned with award-winning physicians, use of innovative technology, state-of-the art laboratories, and best-in-class patient care, which will further enhance and expand the reach of the CCRM network.”

Steven M. Dresner, President of Dresner Partners added, “We are very pleased that we were able to help The Advanced IVF Institute find a strategic partner in CCRM Fertility. We continue to see accelerated growth in the highly fragmented U.S. fertility market due to changing social dynamics, including broader acceptance of IVF and egg freezing, and increased demand from same sex couples. There continues to be a tremendous opportunity for providers to combine their resources to meet their long-term growth objectives.”
