Trends in Expansion through Acquisition
Merrill DataSite, in partnership with the Association for Corporate Growth, conducted an online survey followed by in-depth interviews with M&A dealmakers in the latter part of 2011.
The findings confirm that respondents, particularly those in the middle market, are making plans to grow over the coming 12 to 18 months and are also optimistic about deal flow picking up over that same period. The study was conducted to uncover the latest in corporate trends in expansion and the strategies for growth, whether through the means of acquiring a new product, product line or product feature, or perhaps a new distribution channel.
Over 200 executives were surveyed and or interviewed, of this, 38% of these work for corporations and 76% of the total respondents work for a privately owned company. 50% of respondents’ company revenue in 2011 was under $50 million and half of the total surveyed manage and assess M&A transactions.
