The M&A Source and IBBA, along with Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project publish a quarterly report on the current business brokerage environment. Intermediaries are asked to complete a survey, answering questions about recent closings and what is in the pipeline, and the information is compiled into a report that allows intermediaries to keep a finger on the pulse of the marketplace.
The Bridge, M&A Source’s monthly newsletter, publishes timely articles on a variety of topics. Past Bridge articles can be found by topic below on this page.
