Central Pennsylvania regional M&A update: Q1-2017

There were 32 transactions that closed in the central Pennsylvania regional market during the first quarter of 2017 (Q1-2017), an increase of approximately 6.7 percent from the 30 closed transactions in the prior quarter (Q4-2016). The 32 closed transactions also marks an increase from the 30 closed transactions during the same period in 2016.

While M&A activity slowed in Q1-2017 nationally, it is important to note that this decline is compared to the white hot M&A market in 2015 and 2016. Strong stock market performance and perceived stability pushed U.S. M&A multiples even higher in Q1-2017, to 10.8x. Additionally, although private equity exits to strategic acquirers decreased substantially, secondary buyouts have become more common as industry dry powder grows.
