News about merger & acquisition activity is everywhere. Publications and conferences are dominated by information about who is buying and selling, with more deals announced every day. Valuations continue to peak and as buyers become better capitalized than ever before.
The recently released 2017 Best Practices Study Update offers insights into the current M&A-crazed environment, and how Best Practices agencies are thriving in it. A section of the report explores how these agencies are competing for deals with large, private equity-backed acquirers, and maintaining their privately held status under heavy pressure from the market. This valuable section of the report also provides a snapshot of current M&A activity, including who's buying, public broker valuations, opportunities, lessons and more.
Since 1993, the Big "I" and Reagan Consulting have partnered to produce the Best Practices Study, a comprehensive examination of the top-performing agencies across the country. The study compiles benchmarking data on the key metrics of agency performance and value, including revenue growth and profitability, financial stability, expense management, and sales and operations productivity.
