Generational Equity is On Pace for Another Record Year in 2015

By Generational Equity


Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses, is pleased to announce that it is on a record pace for the number of transactions closing for the second year in a row. 

With 80 deals completed as of the first of November and with deal values ranging from the lower middle-market up to $150 million, the firm is well on its way to beating its prior record which was set in 2014.

According to Dwight Jacobs, Executive Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions, “Our deal teams are busier than ever before in 2015. It truly is a seller’s market and our clients are poised to take advantage of current conditions to find both strategic and financial buyers.”

Generational Equity is one of the leading lower middle-market M&A advisory firms in North America. Having won multiple industry awards including Valuation Firm of the Year by the M&A Advisor in 2014 and M&A Consulting Firm of the Year in 2013 and 2011, the firm has solidified its leadership position by providing exemplary client service and deal-making capabilities.

Tom Farrell, Executive Vice President of Generational Equity, stated “We have made the investment in people and processes over the past several years and it is really paying off in 2015 with a significant year in closed transactions.”

For the past several years, according to Thomson Reuters who tallies M&A transactions, Generational Equity has been one of the highest ranked firms in the lower middle-market.

In 2014, for example, the firm was ranked number one for deals closed valued up to $25 million and was number two in closed deals up to $100 million.

Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity adds, “It is extremely gratifying to see the results of the efforts of our entire team of professionals. Although this has been a very busy year for all of us, our dedication to client service has never wavered and our success in 2015 proves that.”

The good news for business owners that enter the market soon is that the next several months should still provide prime opportunities for timely exits, as buyers scramble to make acquisitions before interest rates begin to gradually rise.
