NDP represented the Seller. “Financial buyers continue to exhibit strong interest, particularly in the packaging sector. When we go to market for a client, it is not at all uncommon for us to receive more interest from financial buyers than strategics, however the numerous ‘tuck-in’ and ‘cashless merger’ transactions we arrange each year are typically to strategic buyers. These small transactions are projected to increase substantially this year as a consequence of the pandemic. “The business environment in 2021 will continue to improve as we put the pandemic in the rear-view mirror. Lenders will be lending at relatively low interest rates for M&A related borrowing. Continued demand among finan- cial buyers will bring significant capital to the marketplace, as well. So, what’s the bottom line? 2021 will be a good time to be a buyer or a seller. A renewed flow of acquisi- tion opportunities in the marketplace will allow buyers to grow their businesses and sellers to realize fair value as they implement their exit strategy.
