Dealmakers in Connecticut foresee continued strength in the market, a new survey says.
Sixty percent of respondents to a survey said they expect a moderate increase in M&A over the next six months, according to the semi-annual ACG-Thomson Reuters DealMakers Survey, sponsored by the Association for Corporate Growth and the publisher of peHub. Another 17% called for a "significant increase" in activity.
The Connecticut results, announced this morning at a networking event in Stamford, are not entirely comparable with the national survey, which is to be released next Tuesday. As a point of comparison, though, the national survey released in May foresaw 85% expecting an increase in M&A activity over the next six months.
