M&A Consulting

The recent PCPS Succession Survey revealed that 62% of multi-owner firms believed that succession planning would be a major issue for them in the next five years. The survey also suggested that the level of merger activity will significantly increase, likely resulting in a buyers market. Odds are you are a potential buyer or seller. Have you considered the impact to your firm?
