In this issue of JEGI’s Client Briefing Newsletter, senior private equity investors share their insights on the M&A market; they expect to see healthy M&A activity over the next 12-18 months, driven by improving credit and debt markets, leverage availability, and more attractive multiples. JEGI’s first half M&A statistics show robust deal activity across the media, information, marketing services and technology sectors. Marketing & Interactive Services led all sectors, accounting for nearly one third of the total deals announced and approximately 25% of transaction value. Healthcare IT is a key driver of M&A activity, and JEGI expects this surge in healthcare IT M&A to continue over the next 12-24 months. JEGI has identified four major “Market Catalysts” that will drive M&A activity in this sector. At the SIIA Strategic & Financial Investment Conference on June 13th in NYC, JEGI Co-Presidents Tolman Geffs and Scott Peters provided the opening keynote presentation focusing on the shift in digital marketing to “Always-On CRM” and the convergence of marketing and technology. JEGI also highlights its exceptional transaction experience across its core sectors, including Onex Corporation’s $950 million acquisition of Nielsen Expositions, MyWebGrocer’s significant investment from PE firm HGGC, the sale of Group SJR to Hill+Knowlton Strategies, a WPP subsidiary, and the sale of DBG to Alloy Digital.
