Frances Brunelle, President of Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, predicted more small manufacturing acquisitions in 2020 in the issue of Manufacturing Outlook ezine. According to Brunelle, the uncertainty on the political front, trade wars, and a pandemic prognosis for recession globally, simply does not translate to the U.S. market. Easy financing conditions along with earlier tax cuts and shifting small manufacturing demographics are driving deal activity for the next decade through 2030. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) multi-year run of unprecedented activity shows no signs of slowing. The drivers include the continued strength of the equity markets and the private equity class.
