This NYT DealBook article grabbed our eye this morning: 97 percent of deal makers in a Brunswick Group survey indicated they thought the M&A market would grow this year.
I know what you’re thinking: “97% of attorneys and M&A guys agreed on something? Nonsense.”
But its probably not. The financial markets are improving, and most importantly (as the article points out) confidence of business leaders is up. Those leaders are likely to either look to buy a company, or in light of decent valuations explore options to sell the company.
While the usual suspects are always out there and active, it’s the companies that are not always out hunting that start to come off the sidelines.
So yes, we’re with the 97% who feel that things are going to get interesting.
