Protegrity Advisors Releases 2014 Year End National M&A Report

March 30, 2015

LONG ISLAND, NY, March, 30 2015 – Leading M&A advisory firm, Protegrity Advisors has published its 2014 yearend report of U.S. merger and acquisition activity covering businesses with revenue up to $100 million.

Key findings include a 3% increase in average transaction value to $20 million in 2014 – up from $19.43 million in 2013. Overall deal volume also increased 3% to 6,192 transactions in 2014 as compared to 5,991 in 2013.

“Recovery of the U.S. economy and availability of low cost capital fueled investor appetite and the slightly higher overall average transaction value,” said Bruce Newman, President of Protegrity Advisors. “The modest uptick in 2014 deal volume resulted in part from continuing availability of high quality targets in the lower middle market.”

Other findings include a 50% increase in average transaction value for Telecommunication companies to $20 million in 2014, up nearly from $13 million in 2013. Information Technology transaction values also jumped 11% to nearly $19 million in 2014, up from $17 million in 2013.

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.”
