REPOST: Formula one or steam roller days for M&A?


Will private equity and companies with large cash return to the days of racing to the finish line for good deals? Or will the big cash player moving like a slow steam roller flattening all other weaker players on the field to control deals with cash? Will it be a  bull or bear M&A market for the first of the year?

Winning in Europe

JD MORRIS VIEW: If you are a company with strong EBITDA, I know of lots of  private equity firms and other companies that need to invest their cash. If you want an even higher valuation, I would explore European players (Formula One Racers).   I also enjoy celebrating selling your company with an industry high valuation with happy buyers, happy sellers, and European champaign ending.

    Europe in this select case is the answer only. Not for healthcare, not for government reform, not for a lot of things…… However, as the dollar is week, companies based outside the US will find deals here.

    I think the ForEx guys know that the dollar can weak some of the time and not so weak the other. It is all timing.
