Generational Equity – Dwight Jacobs in the News

By Generational Equity


Recently the Dallas Business Journal published an issue focusing on one key topic: M&A movers and shakers in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Naturally as one of the leading M&A firms in the middle market, our EVP of M&A, Dwight Jacobs, was highlighted and interviewed.

Here are a few excerpts from his interview:

“The firm’s deal closings are up 40% in the first few months of 2017 from last year. There’s a lot of stuff going on in healthcare and software," Jacobs says.  "There’s about a $1 trillion over hang in public companies and private equity groups that haven’t been deployed," he added.

A number of other key players in the M&A industry were also interviewed for this article and they nearly all echoed Dwight’s perspective on the M&A market today – namely that we are in the midst of one of the strongest seller’s markets in ages, and that buyers are only going to become even more aggressive as the year progresses. There is simply no better way to expand a business in today’s economic environment than through a well thought out and planned acquisition program.

Unfortunately far too many business owners are unaware of how this is an optimal time to be looking for buyers or investors for their companies. Our educational exit planning conferences are populated with entrepreneurs who are there to learn about how (and when) to exit at an optimal price and structure.

If you own a business, you owe it to your family, clients, and associates to learn how to begin an exit planning process. You could be leaving millions of dollars on the table if you don’t learn in advance how to exit for maximum profit.
