Jake Bullen, Co-Chair of the Cassels Private Equity Group, has been quoted in the article “Cautious Optimism Are the Watchwords as Mergers and Acquisitions Lawyers Look at Trends for 2023,” published by Lexpert.
Writes Zena Olijnyk: “If there ever were a year in M&A activity that you could call schizophrenic, it would probably be 2022. It started in high gear, coming off a phenomenal 2021, then slowed considerably in the second half. The big question, however, is what sort of year for M&A will 2023 bring.”
Jake shared his thoughts on the mid-market space, noting “there is a lot of money out there to be put to work.” While it may take a little longer to get the target return on investment, Jake says, “if there is a good deal to be done, and if the numbers make sense, you’ll do the deal.”
