Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!
Asset deals were one of the hardest hit transaction types in 2020. Here are the numbers: last year, global M&A decreased by 7%. Asset deals (as a stand-alone transaction category) dropped by more than 22%. This year, however, is already shaping up to be a much stronger year for asset deals. Sign of good things to come?
A seller may elect to structure a deal as an asset sale for a whole host of reasons, such as getting rid of an underperforming line of business, or to generate cash and prepare for future transactions. Head down to this week’s featured Industry Trends article to read more about what we can deduce from the market’s increased asset deal activity so far in 2021.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a B2B SaaS focused investment firm, a Nashville-based private equity firm, and an independent sponsor focused on partnering with family-owned companies. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a LMM focused advisor and an investment bank run by professionals with over 50 years of combined experience.
