Cascadia Capital’s Spring 2021 Newsletter

March 30, 2021

In the early months of 2021, the deal market has continued to accelerate with transactional activity rebounding robustly since the start of the pandemic a year ago. Deal volume and deal value have bounced backed in a v-shaped recovery across private equity (PE) funds and the broader M&A market.

In our Spring Newsletter, we review a number of factors that are converging to produce the best market we have seen since the period of 1997 through 2000. We also take a deeper dive into the surge of activity we are seeing with SPACs (special purpose acquisition companies), as well as the historic wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

  • The deal market is incredibly robust—with high volume and great valuations—thanks to a number of converging factors.
  • The high risk of capital gains or corporate tax increases in 2022 and beyond creates an important window of opportunity for company owners to consider action this year.
  • There is enormous interest in growth equity opportunities from a wider spectrum of investors, including SPACs.
  • The deal market is becoming slightly less bifurcated, with signs of activity in consumer sectors that may be poised for a resurgence.
  • Preparing for the historic wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution needs to be a top priority for all businesses.
