Cascadia Capital’s Year-End 2020 Newsletter

December 2, 2020

As we enter the holiday season and approach year-end, a natural time for reflection and re-evaluation—particularly this year— we bring to you our final thoughts for 2020 in our Year-End Newsletter.

In this issue, we share our perspectives on the current M&A and capital markets, as well as potential implications for your business. We also provide some of the latest market data that supports our thinking.

For the “In Focus” section, our Robotics, Automation, and Artificial Intelligence practice group discusses how the pandemic has fast-tracked automation technologies and created monumental market shifts.


  • The deal market is bifurcated, with buyers laser-focused on growth.
  • For growing companies, valuations are higher and buyer interest is stronger than before the pandemic in some cases.
  • After a long and hard 2020, many business owners are using the holiday period to re-evaluate the future.
  • Automation is an incoming wave we are urging business owners (or management teams) to think about now.

No matter what challenges are thrown at us in 2021, we are excited to continue to work closely with entrepreneur-owned and family businesses to help you position yourself to thrive. In the meantime, we hope you have a safe and restful holiday period and look forward to connecting with you in the New Year.

Trust. Experience. Independence. Results.
