Q2 2018

It sure feels like behind-the-scenes transaction activity is at very high levels!  We expect to see a jump in deal announcements in the months ahead.  While Q1 volumes were a bit down, we see that as a brief lull in an otherwise active market.  Multiples and leverage levels remain at historically robust levels.  The expected surge in activity is driven by improved performance fundamentals at companies of all sizes.
