Midsize Companies Are Gearing Up for M&A

by James Rourke | Apr 20, 2015   ()

Growing optimism in the economy, stronger corporate balance sheets, and greater liquidity in the financial markets are giving CFOs of the nation’s mid-size companies the confidence to continue to focus on expansion this year. As such, M&A is expected to be an important tool for finance leaders to drive growth through 2015.

Many people working in finance remember the heyday for mergers and acquisitions — right before the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008. Thankfully, nearly all areas of the economy have improved significantly since then. According to Dealogic, the combined value of global M&A transactions announced through the first week of April 2015 exceeded $1 trillion, putting 2015 deal volume on pace to be the second-biggest year in history after 2007.
