Middle-Market Merger & Acquisition Activity is Gaining Momentum; Valuations are Healthy
The number of deals for the first four months of 2021 increased significantly vs. the same period last year. The overall backdrop for M&As is very supportive (economic factors, debt and equity markets, strategic and private equity acquisitiveness). Valuations are healthy. M&A activity among the commercial and industrial sectors that Wilcox Investment Bankers follows are all experiencing significant increases in activity.
