News From The Middle

Q3 2016

Despite uncertainty in global markets, middle market M&A valuations in the US have remained strong through Q3 2016.  Trump vs. Hillary, Brexit, interest rates, oil prices and Turkey’s failed coup are all forces that have threatened and, more importantly, failed to destabilize markets.  Instead, domestic M&A activity has remained healthy, highlighted by increased EBITDA multiples across industries and transaction sizes, strong average deal valuations, renewed interest by foreign acquirers and continued interest from private equity (PE) and corporate acquirers.
