quarter three middle market m&a update 2019

“MIDDLE MARKET VOLUME INCREASES DESPITE GLOBAL BUYER CONCERNS”

U.S. deal volume was strong during the third quarter 2019, with volume rising 1.6% compared to the second quarter 2019. Overall, M&A volume is up year-to-date from both 2018 and 2017. Sustaining these levels of activity may be difficult in an economy that some are expecting to slow down.

Average and median transaction values decreased 16.0% and 4.3% from Q2-19, respectively, as a result of fewer megadeals and an uptick in transaction volume. In terms of what is next for deals, consolidation and divestitures are likely to remain in the mix. Geopolitical uncertainty could impact cross-border M&A and the interest among foreign investors for U.S. companies.
