2019 Proves To Be Another Strong Year For Sellers

US deal volume trended upwards during the fourth quarter 2019, with volume rising 1.8% compared to the third quarter 2019. Overall, M&A volume neared its highest point in the last 10 quarters, second only to Q1-19. Average and median transaction values rebounded from the last quarter, increasing 14.3% and 12.4% from Q3-19, respectively. Activity and valuations remain strong despite a decline in the RSM U.S. Middle Market Business Index following two quarters of increases. Softened economic expectations, high capital expenditures, and labor constraints continue to be at the top of the list of concerns for middle market executives.
