2021 M&A Outlook — Virtual Roundtable Hosted by Axial

Matt Miller participated in Axial’s first event of 2021, in which 10 lower middle market deal professionals sat down (via Zoom) for a discussion on what to expect in the year ahead. Topics of conversation included deal structures, debt markets, and the shift to virtual. Participants also provided insights on how to get deals done in a post-COVID world and gave predictions around deal activity in the hyper-competitive market of 2021.

“The changes that operators made to their businesses, as well as the stimulus, have put some businesses in a really strong capital and liquidity position.”

“We’re expecting a robust 2021, with volume levels likely near what we saw in 2019.”
