Merger & Acquisition Trends for Summer 2015
- By September, we could reach a trillion dollars in proposed deals for the summer, beating out the previous seasonal high in 2007.
- A significant portion of this summer surge is being led by corporate buyers who are scooping up acquisition targets and borrowing like rates may rise tomorrow to fund current or future deals.
- In June and July 933 deals came to market.
- While historically August can prove to be a quieter month, the momentum to date is leading many to believe that a summer slowdown is nowhere in sight and that we could be headed for one the most active years on record for dealmakers.
In recent blogs we have also reported the positive trend in California for business sales as well. These current trends begs the question… “is now the best time to sell my business?” Naturally it’s impossible to predict the future but the market is showing positive signs for sellers looking to exit their business. And with the retiring baby boomer trend continuing to heat up some predict the increased volume of business’s for sale will create more of a buyer’s market in the years coming ahead. It’s never too early to have to starting discussing the proper exit for anyone’s business.
