More Firms Will Tie the Knot
Expect more mergers and acquisitions before year-end.
Expect more mergers and acquisitions before year-end. The dollar amount of deals will likely climb by more than a third this year, and another 20% in 2011. There will be less financing and more cash deals as firms start to release funds that they've been hoarding for the past two years. Buyers will focus on expanding existing business lines or filling gaps. (www.kiplingerbiz.com/mergers)
