Accelerating growth, global economic expansion, aggressively pro-business fiscal policies-certainly there are plenty of positive signs pointing to strong M&A activity ahead. But even with a great economic outlook, there are no guarantees. Disruptions in technology, people and process are likely to impact every facet of the opportunity set for companies looking to transact, make investments, grow their earnings and remain active in 2018.
As the dynamics of M&A continue to shift, evolve and blur traditional boundaries, it’s critical to be strategic as well as optimistic, to be aware of the risks as well as the opportunities. That’s what makes The Alliance 2018 Summer Conference so vital. It’s where hundreds of middle market M&A professionals from around the globe will gather to collectively explore emerging concerns, collaborate on real solutions and make connections.
