Mergers and Acquisitions Reach a 7-Year High

Mergers have hit a seven year high.  While deal value is up 73 percent, the number of deals has decreased 0.4 percent, according to Reuters data. This confirms what we’ve been seeing since last year: larger, fewer transactions. With mega deals on the rise, we will likely see more activity in the middle market as confidence levels improve and executives become more likely to pursue acquisitions and execute deals.
