New Acadia CEO doesn't rule out future buyout - (Nashville Business Journal via NewsPoints Desk)

  • Acadia Healthcare chief executive Debbie Osteen is not ruling out the company going private in the future, reported the Nashville Business Journal.

  • During Acadia's fourth-quarter results presentation, Osteen said she was evaluating the company's standing, but plans to present her strategy for its future direction in May during the next earnings call.

  • When asked by an analyst if her review includes considering strategic alternatives such as a buyout, Osteen said "I would say that it's going to be very comprehensive."

  • Osteen was named CEO in December after Acadia's board of directors voted to oust long-time chairman and chief executive Joey Jacobs.
