Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!
A recent survey of 250 corporate M&A professionals confirmed what many of us in the M&A community have been hearing for months: increasing deal volumes, a strong appetite to get deals done, and a general improvement in sentiment, despite the continued challenges, means we’re likely in for a very active year of M&A.
One of the most encouraging data points from the survey is actually the #1 predicted roadblock to getting deals done this year. Nothing says return-to-normal better than good old disputes over seller valuation expectations. Head down to this week’s featured industry trends section of Radar to read about the other potential factors standing in the way of what should be an eventful 2021.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a leading industrials-focused PE firm, a healthcare PE firm, and a private investment firm focused on partnering with service businesses in the aerospace and defense industry. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a boutique healthcare advisor and a Scottsdale-based M&A advisory firm.
