2023 Compliance Trends: Staying Ahead in an Evolving Regulatory E...
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in the United States remained strong in 2015 surpassing 2014’s record year following the financial crisis of 2009, both in terms of deal volume and deal value. There are certainly a number of factors contributing to the increase in M&A beyond overall growth and expansion in the United States.
Two factors that play a big role are cash availability, held by either corporations or private equity, and access to capital. The credit markets have rebounded remarkably since the financial crisis supporting M&A growth and activity with liquidity at historic low costs. Benefiting from both, in general, are M&A valuations, such that a wide consensus of private equity market participants consider the current state of the M&A market to be one of a “seller’s market.”
As with other markets, timing of market cycles is an important and critical component to consider when making decisions. This is no different for the M&A market. While on a macro level the state of the M&A market is positive, this may not be the case for all industries. Each business’ situation is different, and many factors need to be considered when determining the right time to sell, buy, raise capital or place debt. Speak to an investment banker to help you assess your specific situation and take advantage of market cycles.
