Liquidity for Manufacturers- Current Trends in M&A and Private Equity
We are pleased to present the fifth program in our webinar series, “The Evolving Manufacturing Industry: Legal Developments, Challenges, and Opportunities” that will focus on current trends in M&A and private equity.
Historically high multiples being paid for companies, particularly profitable manufacturers, continue to delight sellers and pose challenges for buyers. The current seller’s market is being fed by aggressive lending by banks and non-bank lenders, in addition to large amounts of cash being held by corporations and private equity funds. Another contributor to current trends is the increasing availability of representation and warranty insurance. The prices being paid; however, come with high expectations leading to a higher incidence of price adjustments and broken deals.
Join us to discuss how these trends are relevant to manufacturing companies, even those with no current plans to buy or sell.
