Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe 2014 is already over, especially since it was a particularly good year for M&A. As the NYTimes reported this weekend, “Some 40,298 transactions — worth nearly $3.5 trillion — were announced worldwide in 2014, according to Thomson Reuters, fulfilling the hopes of an industry that has bet on such a resurgence for some time. It was the biggest year in deals since 2007.”

The main driver of deals appeared to be the increased activity from strategics. As it turns out, 2014 was a record year for exits via sales.

If you are looking to make 2015 just as successful as 2014, it is critical to really focus on your business development efforts. Read a recent article from Axial CEO, Peter Lehrman, about how you can get to business development 2.0.
