Private Equity-Backed Dermatology Groups Got COVID-19 Small-Business Loans

The complex business structures of some private equity-backed dermatology groups allowed them to receive millions in COVID-19 funds intended for small businesses, federal disclosures reveal. Lawmakers and regulators structured the Paycheck Protection Program so that most private equity-owned businesses would not qualify. Only companies with 500 employees or fewer are eligible for the program, which offers loan forgiveness if the loans are spent on qualifying expenses. If a business is majority owned by a private equity firm, the employees of all the firm’s portfolio companies count toward its total employee tally, thus disqualifying many companies. However, a variety of factors have allowed some dermatology groups backed by private equity to receive millions in forgivable loans.
