Three recent deals are being heralded as “the revival” of the M&A market. Although the linked article captures some of the larger buy-side deals (for example Disney’s $4 billion purchase of Marvel) that are now beginning to emerge, we here at Capstone are seeing a similar trend in the area of the market where we mainly focus: smaller to mid-size ($25 to $200 million) transactions. Firms are beginning to react to the apparent improvement in economic conditions (according to some indicators, but not all – see today’s unemployment numbers), and wish to capitalize on lower prices and expectations before a full recovery occurs.
