It’s certainly worth your time to read the article to gain some deep insights into the market and how you can set yourself up for success.

Here is an excerpt from the analysis:

“As we reflect on the results of the first half of 2018, the outlook in the M&A space is looking
more positive than we’ve seen in years. Investment Bankers across the industry are buzzing
about what the rest of 2018 has in store.
In Q1 Healthcare made a particularly strong splash with M&A in the space already at a 10 year
high. We are seeing Technology make a comeback after a relatively stagnant 2017 with cross
sector M&A leading the way in the industry. Cross Sector M&A has been booming over the past
few years mainly due to an influx in new technology and we continue to see it trend strong, and
other whispers of strong performances on the street have some saying that 2018 will be “The
year of FIG (Financial Institutions)” The overarching reasons for increased M&A activity can be
attributed to deregulation and tax reform. With some of the political changes that have taken
place in the last year, there has been a strong emphasis on creating jobs and boosting the
economy, which has led to plenty of extra capital floating around for M&A.”
