The acquisition is expected to close in 1Q18. We believe Practice Fusion was sold at 1.0x-2.0x revenue, implying a $50M- $100M revenue run rate. It is expected to be marginally accretive in 2018. We estimate that the company’s recently-acquired Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) business is operating at a roughly $400M-$450M revenue run rate, significantly above our original estimate of $300M. We believe attrition in the EIS business may be lower than originally projected.””
