Quarter Two Middle Market M&A Report

“M&A Trends Remain Steady”

M&A transaction activity continues to be healthy. Economic growth remains robust, and businesses continue to have access to historically inexpensive debt. During Q2 2018, there were 2,768 completed transactions totaling $97.1 billion in North America (per Capital IQ).

 

Along with the economy, the M&A market continues to be resilient. Corporations and private equity (PE) firms are both flush with cash, so they continue to seek acquisitions. Corporate buyers are hungry for growth, and they increasingly view M&A to be an attractive option.
