Generational Equity Newsletter May 2019

Hello and welcome to our May 2019 eNewsletter!

I hope that 2019 is off to a tremendous start for both you and your family and that you are experiencing a very successful year.

All the data is finally in from the M&A analysts and they have proven what we already knew:

2018 was a record year for M&A activity!

It certainly was for our firm as we continued a three-year trend with another record year in terms of deal closings and we are expecting more of the same in 2019. In fact, according to Mergermarket, through the first quarter of this year: “There have been 504 deals valued at $257.5 billion so far in 2019, up 15.4% from $223.2 billion announced in the same period last year.”

For more information on why last year was a record year and this one should be the same (if not even better), please click this link:

Remember that Generational Equity is always here to assist with your journey as a business owner and help you create a successful exit strategy when the time comes. Over the past decade we are both privileged and proud to have helped more lower middle market companies (those with valuations up to $50 million) successfully exit their businesses than any other M&A advisory firm in North America. Since our inception, we have transferred nearly $5 billion in wealth to our clients and their families. 

Our dealmakers are skilled and experienced in negotiating within our vast buyer network and we are ready to meet with you to discuss your personal goals and objectives.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in attending another exit planning conference or if you prefer a face-to-face private meeting with one of our M&A professionals to discuss your options. We believe that it is vital for business owners to develop exit strategies that will protect and defend the significant equity they have built into their businesses. We are passionate about assisting our clients in this process and helping them make confident, informed decisions.

Please call us at 972-232-1121 or send an email to info@generational.com if you would like information about a conference in your area or if you would like to meet with us one-on-one. If you would like to find a conference near you, use this link.

And if you haven’t already done so, please feel free to subscribe to our exit planning blog using this link:

Subscribing will allow you to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in M&A planning and provide timely research to give direction as you consider your exit timing and strategies.

Thank you for your time and have a blessed day!
