The survey that may signal an M&A slowdown

BVWireIssue #57-1
June 7, 2007

Also exclusively for BVWire subscribers: Each year the DAK Group (in collaboration with Columbia Business School) conducts a survey of mid-market M&A and economic trends, and this year, they’ve provided BVWire with copies of their summary report, Charting the Course 2007.  In the survey, business owners expressed concern about M&A as a strategic tool in 2007 and beyond, suggesting that the current market may be losing momentum (see BVWire #55-2 for commentary by the New York Business Journal).  Respondents also provide their thoughts on mid-market growth expectations, the general economy and private equity's expanding role in mid-market M&A.  For your copy of the summary, click here.
