Jordan Nix, Managing Director at CFA Toronto, commented on the current state of the M&A market: “Although the deals have been increasing in value, they decreased in number. This shows that companies are looking for quality over quantity. We certainly share that mindset of searching for strategic targets for our clients that can significantly improve their businesses and help them reach their goals through acquisitions.”
