Lead Left Presents: M&A Outlook

We’re kicking off the new year next week with our first “Lead Left Presents” webinar. Four top middle market investment bankers will be talking about the deal market, what happened last year, and what’s to come for 2022.

What’s motivating buyers and sellers? How did Covid impact processes and outcomes? How is extreme liquidity affecting the competitive landscape?

We’ll also look at sector behavior. Early in the pandemic you couldn’t give away cyclicals, retail, and travel and leisure. Today, as you’ll hear, everything is selling, and at high multiples.

How have different industries fared and how do bankers think about valuations? What’s the latest view of Covid adjustments to Ebitda? Are supply-chain issues putting a dent in growth and price expectations?
