KippsDesanto & Co is pleased to share its second annual survey of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity and sentiment in the Aerospace/Defense, Technology and Government Service sectors. In this study, we asked key dealmakers from relevant sectors to share their predictions about M&A deal activity and valuations over the next year.
We also asked them to share their insights on strategic drivers of M&A activity and the impact of recent events, including the 2018 United States midterm elections.
In this survey, we find dealmakers remain quite positive about 2019, with most expecting moderate economic growth and predicting M&A activity will increase somewhat or remain about the same as 2018. These are quite positive findings, given last year’s robust activity levels.
