Continuing high M&A levels in the SME space

leave a comment »


The attached slides from one of our recent M&A presentations highlights the reasons for the continuing high levels of M&A activity in the small & medium-size business space:

  1. there is no shortage of capital available;
  2. historically low cost of capital (both debt & equity);
  3. lack of organic growth in the economy;
  4. baby boomer demographics (and the lessening of internal family business succession).

In our view, these key indicators point to elevated levels of M&A activity in the near- to mid-term.
