Vanishing Borders

A ground-breaking global survey of mid-market M&A advisors by the Alliance of M&A Advisors and IR Global - two of the largest international professional services networks has found that:

  • 91% of respondents believe that mid-market M&A activity (deals valued at up to $500 million) will increase or stay the same during the next 12 months
  • There is optimism for cross-border deals with 95% of respondents predicting that the number of cross-border mid-market M&A deals over the next 12 months will stay the same or increase

The Alliance of M&A Advisors and IR Global joined together to produce "Vanishing Borders: How the Private M&A Market is Making Global Gains"

after observing the changing the role of the advisors in their networks in response to the need in today's market to be connected internationally. The findings of the research give a fascinating insight into expectations and future advisors, and the issues that affect the successful completion of such deals.
