Q1 2024 Market Insights Update
Cabrera Capital Markets
Cabrera Capital Markets Advisory Group has published its latest Q1 2024 Quarterly Newsletter, which highlights notable M&A and capital market activity in the U.S. across various market sectors. The first quarter of 2024 has seen slightly diminishing macroeconomic headwinds and improving liquidity conditions. Deal activity has been steady with estimated deal count slightly higher relative to the past year, but deal value is moderately lower. Overall, debt to enterprise value slightly deteriorated in Q1, and debt to EBITDA ratios were also below long-term averages. Add on acquisitions and small to mid-market transactions continue to drive deal activity amid the challenges of tightened credit conditions, market volatility, and geopolitical threats. So far this year, valuation multiples have increased on an EBITDA and revenue basis. While it is a bit too early to say M&A is back, we are encouraged by the recent trends.

Q4 2023 Market Insights Update
Cabrera Capital Markets
Cabrera Capital Markets Advisory Group has published its latest Q4 2023 Quarterly Newsletter, which highlights notable M&A and capital market activity in the U.S. across various market sectors. While overall valuations increased in the fourth quarter, global mergers and acquisitions transactions decreased to a 10 year low in 2023. The story was just as challenging for IPOs. While 2023 was affected by recessionary fears, inflationary pressure, consumer spending, and unemployment, current headwinds include Federal Reserve monetary policy and geo-political tensions. This market volatility has resulted in decreased deal volumes, as well as tight debt and equity capital availability and deployment. While the number of new large platform investments has decreased, transactions in the small to midmarket have been carrying the day. In spite of all this instability, the S&P 500 has surprisingly soared to near record highs.

Adding value to new bond issues is a relationship business

October 3, 2021 | Primary Markets TV

Adding value to a deal requires his firm to reach out to the 400 investor accounts – including smaller firms by assets under management – and ensuring that the breadth of investors increases pricing and liquidity transparency in the deal. Strengthening relationships with large broker dealer firms and focusing on the capital structure of clients will be core to growth over the next 12 months, Managing Director Santino Bibbo explains.
