Pacific Northwest Market Update
M&A Market Update | Quarter 2 2021
Alexander Hutton is pleased to present the latest edition of our Pacific Northwest Market Update, as the economy continues to recover from COVID-19 M&A activity is at record levels! If you didn't catch the last edition, our quarterly report provides data and insights on: transaction counts and trends by industry as well as by state in the PNW region, region specific completed transactions and highlights, how the Pacific Northwest compares to the rest of the U.S., and more!
As witnessed by most actors in the “deal ecosystem” activity is at record levels. Both deal volume and valuation increased in Q2 as the economy continues to recover from COVID. While many industries have been forever changed from COVID others have thrived. There remains 7 million private companies with owners over 55 and $3T of private equity looking to generate returns, we view this macro environment as ideal for transactions, no matter the looming tax effects. As shown by the two transactions we closed this quarter, capital providers continue to seek out strong acquisitions with proven management teams and
durable business models.
“Having just closed our 217th transaction, we at Alexander Hutton have never been busier. Our regional focus has expanded, our team has grown and the quality of our clients continues to grow by size with many diverse industries represented. We are having a blast serving our clients!”
