At The M&A Advisor’s Annual Summit in New York, KSM’s roundtable session, “Investor Outlook for 2016,” asked top industry leaders to share their insights and reflections on market trends as a whole as well as in a variety of industries and sectors.

Panelists John K. Castle of Castle Harlan, Savio Tung of Investcorp, Jennifer St. Pierre of EMC, and Bob Morse of Strattam Capital reviewed a wide range of topics impacting the M&A industry including:

  • Optimizing growth in the middle and lower-middle markets
  • Analysis of deal sizes in 2015 and the continuing trends in 2016
  • The focus of M&A activity in 2016
  • Debt ratio trends

The M&A Advisor conducted the following interviews, which summarize observations and highlight insights for M&A activity in 2016.
