ABSTRACT
The article reports on the survey of investment bankers and lawyers conducted by Brunswick Group concerning mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The poll showed that 52 percent of respondents believed a sound economy would regain its M&A footing in a year to 18 months. However, 41% said that it will take up to five years to reach the levels of M&A activity witnessed in 2007. M&A represents a vital exit path for venture capitalists who use buyout profits to pay off investors and cycle fresh capital into new portfolio companies.
