Don Bravaldo, CPA
As 2021 brings hopes of a better year for people across the world, business owners, buyers and deal makers here in the U.S. are eager for insights about the M&A environment. What industries will emerge as winners, and which will be left behind in the new year? What new tactics and approaches will make their way into the deal-making playbook? With the election behind us and progress on COVID-19 vaccines, I believe 2021 is poised to be a strong year for M&A.
In the wake of the pandemic’s financial toll, a range of players — from strategic industry buyers to financial buyers (private equity, family office, venture capital) — appear eager to ramp up investments.
