Investment Banking South Survey Sparks Conversation in the Southeast

Results from Investment Banking South’s recent survey have received media coverage across the region. Participants were asked to look back to 2014 and forward to 2015 so as to gauge where the merger & acquisition market in the South is today and where it is going.

Conducted in April 2015, this survey was completed by 338 investors, business owners and business advisors – such as attorneys, accountants and bankers – from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The results of this survey complement Investment Banking South’s ongoing interviews with key figures on the mergers & acquisitions landscape in the Southeast. Through these sit-downs and this annual survey, we’ll be better able to identify trends and patterns over time that may shed further light on the evolution of the middle market in the South.

According to the survey, the Southeastern M&A market is hot. And everybody’s talking about it. We are pleased that we have contributed something to an important conversation for businesses in our region.
