M&A breaking records
April 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Inflation, employee shortages, conflict in the former USSR, COVID-19… In many years, any one or two of these dynamics could have put a damper on M&A activity. But today, M&A continues at a fevered pace. Last year, global M&A transactions totaled $5.8 trillion, 48% above record.
So what’s different today? We can point to two main drivers: Supply and demand and strong lending.
Supply and demand. We have more buyers looking for business acquisitions than we have sellers. Not only that, we have more money set aside for investment than we’ve ever seen before.
Strong lending. Fed hikes notwithstanding, interest rates are still the lowest we’ll likely see in our lifetimes. Money is cheap and available, and lenders are funding a larger portion of each transaction.
It’s good news for sellers. Call us to talk about current market conditions and your potential business value. (All conversations confidential.)
