November 8, 2018


The M&A market is experiencing steady growth in 2018 fueled by availability of capital, US economic conditions, and positive changes in the US tax law. According to Dykema's Mergers and Acquisitions Outlook Survey 2018/2019, 65 percent of respondents expect the M&A market to strengthen over the next twelve months. This compares to fewer than 40 percent in each of the past three years. Based on the survey, respondents are more bullish about deals under $100 million as well as deals in the automotive, energy, and consumer products sectors. Some of the biggest obstacles to middle market M&A are availability of quality sellers, the turbulent stock market, and rising interest rates.

Business owners thinking about a liquidity event need to consider financial, operational, and strategic aspects of a business in a bullish M&A market to help reduce challenges encountered in a deal process. UHY's Corporate Finance team focuses on helping middle market businesses to maximize deal value, minimize risks, and get deals closed!
