From the Desk of Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Group – November 2018

By Generational Group


Hello and welcome to our November 2018 eNewsletter!

Recent news from our friends with Intralinks indicates that based on their research, the current seller’s market will continue for the next several months. Intralinks provides virtual data rooms for investment banks to store deal data. They base their forecast on the number of rooms opened quarterly and their new study, M&A Seller’s Market Gaining Steam in 2018, indicates solid M&A activity for a few months to come.

This is really good news for business owners that are actively in the market right now, looking for or negotiating with potential buyers.

But my question for you is: where do you stand in your exit planning process?

Generational Equity is always here to assist with your journey as a business owner and help you create a successful exit strategy when the time comes. Over the past decade we are both privileged and proud to have helped more lower middle market companies (those with valuations up to $50 million) successfully exit their businesses than any other M&A advisory firm in North America. In 2017 alone we helped transfer nearly $700 million in wealth to our clients and we recently passed the $4 billion mark in wealth creation for our clients. So far, 2018 is shaping up to be another record year for our firm.

Our dealmakers are skilled and experienced in negotiating within our vast buyer network and we are ready to meet with you to discuss your personal goals and objectives.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in attending another exit planning conference or if you prefer a face-to-face private meeting with one of our M&A professionals to discuss your options. We believe that it is vital for business owners to develop exit strategies that will protect and defend the significant equity they have built into their businesses. We are passionate about assisting our clients in this process and helping them make confident, informed decisions.

Please call us at 972-232-1121 or send an email to if you would like information about a conference in your area or if you would like to meet with us one-on-one. If you would like to find a conference near you, use this link.
