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

By Generational Group


Hello and welcome to our October 2018 eNewsletter!  

The headline of our recent blog post sums up the current seller’s market quite accurately:

Based on a variety of sources that we track, this year is shaping up to be one of the most optimal markets for sellers of businesses in decades. We are seeing the same trend with our clients. In fact, based on deal closings so far this year, we are up 12% compared to last year, and 2017 was a record year for us! 

The key question we all have is how long will this current seller’s market last? No one can predict the future but one thing is clear, there are two types of business owners:

  • Those that PLAN to sell
  • Those that HAVE to sell

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 $100 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.

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 would 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.

So 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

Subscribing will allow you to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in M&A planning and provide timely research to give direction as you consider your exit timing and strategies.

Thank you and I wish you and your family continued success in 2018!
