April 3, 2017

On April 3, Matthew Hurd was quoted in an American Lawyer article titled “Will Deal Flow Be an Unexpected Bust in 2017?” The article examined how uncertainty regarding the implementation of a pro-business agenda could impact M&A this year. Matthew discussed how this uncertainty can make it difficult to value deals. “It is possible that there could be substantial valuation mismatches between what buyers are willing to pay and sellers are willing to take,” he said. “But until we have a lot more information in each sector, it's not clear how significant that factor of higher-priced companies will be.”
