Download report

Uncertainty looms large for companies operating in the business and professional services industry. They continue to search for ways to differentiate themselves. Acquisitions are a helpful solution in this environment as strategic acquirers look to add services, products and geographies. Private equity (PE) firms continue to wonder about varying tax questions, including the border adjustment tax. They are also wondering about overall corporate and pass-through rates and interest deductibility.

Given high valuations, PE firms are being increasingly careful about which assets they go after and they have become much more creative in deploying their capital, including making debt transactions, arranging minority preferred transactions and raising sidecar vehicles.
