The M&A market remains strong, with strategic corporate acquirers continuing to seek growth through acquisitions as they bolster healthy balance sheets, collectively estimated at $1.8 trillion. Furthermore, private equity fundraising activity in 2Q, at $48 billion, was at its highest level since 1Q 2009, bringing the total to $73 billion for the first half of 2013. This places the private equity overhang (funds raised vs. funds deployed) at $328 billion. Low interest rates and available capital have also made for a favorable financing environment.
