Research Report: End of One M&A Cycle
The combination of low interest rates and historically high levels of cash on corporate balance sheets has helped whet the appetites for merger and acquisition activity on the part of both strategic (i.e., corporate) and financial (i.e., private equity) buyers. According to SIA’s “Trends in Staffing Mergers and Acquisitions” report, the total number of staffing and workforce solutions M&A deals publicly announced in the EMEA region reached 121 in 2019, up from 117 the previous year and the highest activity over the prior five years. (The actual number of completed deals is much higher as most staffing firm acquisitions are small and are not announced.)
