QUARTERLY M&A MARKET PULSE: 2024 QUARTER 1
Join Scott Mashuda for an exclusive presentation on the upcoming trends for Quarter 1 2024 in lower-middle market M&A.
The M&A market is a barometer for the broader business environment. It reflects economic conditions, industry-specific challenges and opportunities, as well as investor sentiment. By understanding the trends in this space, businesses can better position themselves for growth, partnerships, and potential exits.
Scott will kick off the session by discussing current market conditions. What external factors are influencing the M&A landscape? How are global events, technological advancements, and shifts in consumer behavior impacting the decisions of buyers and sellers? These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed, providing attendees with a holistic view of the market's driving forces.
Scott will also cover industry sectors and delve into which sectors are currently active and why, as well as those that are less active. Other topics of interest are valuation multiplies, and the latest deal trends in this comprehensive session.
