LONG ISLAND, NY, October 2, 2014 – Protegrity Advisors, a leading regional mergers and acquisitions advisory firm, today announced the release of its M&A report for the Long Island region.

The report, which covers Nassau and Suffolk Counties for the period between January 2009 and September 2014, provides an overall look at aggregate M&A volume, business valuations, deal count by industry, average deal size and 2014 year to date figures.

“We created the report as a tool for local business owners to assess the level of M&A activity on Long Island and to see how business valuations were trending,” said Bruce Newman, President of Protegrity’s M&A practice.

As highlighted in the report, M&A transactions on Long Island for 2014 have already surpassed $1.0 billion for the first time ever, while the average selling price is nearly double the average for 2013. “The recent surge in activity and business valuations points to a very positive environment for business owners who are thinking about the sale of their business,” said Newman.

Client Testimonials

“The Protegrity team masterfully navigated our acquisition by Eclipsys. Since Protegrity led the process and negotiations, our management team was allowed to focus on our own clients and not be distracted by the hour-to-hour gyrations of the deal, and we were also able to preserve a great working relationship with the buyer.”
