Trillium Advisory Firm M&a Market Activity Stay Solid in Spite of Economic Improbability

The first half of 2012 saw resurgence in the marketplace both in public equity market performance and a corresponding run-up in middle market M&A activity. However, the second quarter has been riddled with economic headwinds, creating uncertainty around a sustainable economic recovery.

Chicago, IL, November 21, 2012 --( Despite the emergence of negative economic factors Trillium Advisory Firm believes the confluence of excess liquidity, acquisitiveness of buyer constituencies and scarcity premiums afforded quality companies will collectively drive continued M&A activity through 2012, albeit at a slower rate and with a more discernible eye towards “quality” assets.

Second quarter middle market M&A activity reflected the restoration of modest acquirer confidence in the markets. The lower middle market, defined as transactions valued less than $60M, saw a continuing trend of increasing activity as buyers executed buy versus build strategies with the acquisition of core technologies, brands or geographic footprints. For Q2 2012, the number of deals valued less than $60M increased 15 percent from Q2 2011 and nine percent over the same period a year ago.

Recent economic factors including debates over the U.S. economic situation have contributed to a deceleration of U.S. economic growth and a moderate slowdown of M&A activity. However, we at Trillium Advisory Firm believe that there are adequate market fundamentals in place that will help to sustain market activity at its current level with a favorable environment for strong performing companies.
