Industrials M&A to See Its Rebound Extend into 2017


Robert Goldstein said that private equity still has a lot of dry powder for M&A deals and firms are actively looking for deals, but there is “a bit of a wait-and-see attitude due to uncertainty” around the political, interest rate and tax situations. As a result, he continued, “There’s a lot of noise and uncertainty that’s having some impact on deal activity,” although “it’s something they risk-adjust for when placing bids.”
