The Election and the M&A Market


Program produced by XPX New Jersey.

The Election and the M&A Market 

The New Jersey chapter is excited to continue our programming year with another thoughtful and insightful meeting. Our chapter is growing and welcoming professional advisors who help business owners plan for a successful exit. As we continue to examine many of the different planning considerations and decisions an owner needs to face, our members participate in this interactive discussion. We welcome your attendance at our next meeting.

The New Jersey chapter is ready to support our members and their guests as we continue to manage through the pandemic. We have established a virtual meeting environment to allow our members to participate safely and engage with others during this time. This month our discussion will be lead by Valentina Midura, a Senior Managing Director with BDO Capital Advisors, LLC as well as Mark Borda, a Director within Citrin Cooperman’s Transaction Advisory Services. Our meeting will address the upcoming election and its impact on the M&A market. What is the current state of the M&A market and will the election impact an acceleration of transactions before year end? What should advisors know to guide their clients properly during this time? How would the M&A environment change after an election or is it business as usual? Will there be an increase pickup in deal’s closing before year end in 2020 or will many buyers subscribe to the wait and see model? Our discussion will be led by industry leaders with insight to these questions and many more.

This highly interactive session will allow for participation by attendees in a collaborative format. As an association of experienced advisory professionals for business owners and their companies, we are all focused on delivering the highest level of subject matter expertise to our clients and we would value your expertise and insights. We invite you to join us for this exciting event and for the entire series this year! Please register for this highly informative event. Final information for the Zoom webinar will be sent to all of those registered.
