PE + M&A

Deal Activity Upstate

Two companies have been acquired by public companies in the last couple of weeks: Saratoga-based Century Health and Housing Capital by Velocity Financial and Ellenville-based MMI Agriculture. Both transactions were strategic moves for companies in California and Colorado, respectively. Learn more about finding the right buyer for a business at Upstate Capital’s upcoming M&A Advisor Series.

2022 M&A Slowdown?

Three factors will potentially impact the pace of deal-making in 2022: antitrust efforts, cost of capital, and surprises causing volatility in the market. The NY Times reported on what might cool off the M&A market in the coming months.
