Merger and Acquisition Update
There have been several new closed deals and I feel confident saying that there will be a number of others closing before the end of the year. The primary reasons for the uptick are based on a continuation of the trends outlined in the following pages with the most significant being the aging partner base and continued slower growth environment.
Some of the current top of mind issues include the following:
- Uncertainty about the economy
- The likelihood of significant tax increases
- The unknown of 2012 election results and subsequent actions
- Continuing domestic and international financial unrest
On the positive side, I think it’s an amazing time to be a practicing CPA. Clients need you now more than ever and you have the ability to offer more and more higher value services.
