Gray, Gray & Gray and leading M&A professionals kicked off the official start of summer with the seventh invitation-only DealMakers event on June 24th. The event, which was held at Sky Restaurant in Norwood, MA, brought together nearly 40 members of the New England M&A community for deal flow opportunities and a lively roundtable discussion about trends and market activities.
Key topics discussed ranged from current deal multiples and activity for the past quarter, to EBITDA add-backs and perception in the marketplace about amounts and variety to be included in the analysis, the importance of audited or reviewed financial statements to help alleviate buyer concerns and to mitigate surprises during the due diligence stage, and a rise in public companies engaging in M&A deals with private companies to increase market share or assist with vertical integration. In addition to the roundtable discussion, the event provided attendees with the opportunity to meet M&A professionals who could potentially assist them in their next phase of business, such as exploring potential exit strategies.
