M&A and Private Equity Update


This year’s edition reflects relative consistency of national trends with the prior year. While aggregate transaction activity nationally in 2011 was only marginally higher than in 2010, we are pleased that our clients successfully closed significantly more transactions during 2011. While some commentators predicted that the decrease in transaction activity nationally during the second half of 2011 was an indicator of decreased transaction activity for 2012, we remain relatively optimistic that 2012 transaction activity levels will improve. Our optimism is based in large part on increasingly accommodating credit markets, the continued growth of the domestic economy, gains in the equity markets, record cash available for acquisitions from strategic and financial buyers, and the feedback that we receive from our clients.

As economic and policy uncertainty continues, we remain committed to providing counsel that meets the particular business and transaction objectives of our clients. If you would like to discuss any aspect of this M&A Update, please call your Akerman contact.
