Synopsis: 2016 has been a very busy year for the M&A market. Credit has been available, strategics have plenty of cash on hand and private equity firms have dry powder to put to work, but where are the quality deals? The scarcity of available deals has created an ultra competitive deal making environment. What will change in 2017?
