IPOs for small-cap and mid-cap companies will be few and far between.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2011
Chad Watt, a Dallas-based reporter for Mergermarket, an M&A newswire, says mergers and acquisitions are expected to be up in 2011 with Texas deal flow led by oil E&P, oilfield services and related sectors. Watt also commented that for sellers to get good multiples, they will need to generate competition among acquirers to drive higher valuations. Comments were made in a new video posted to the Texas ACG Capital Connection blog hosted by Allegiance Capital Corporation.
Regarding IPOs, Watt said oil and natural gas prices could drive IPOs in those sectors, and, depending on what happens with Facebook, IPOs in technology could be on the rise. However, according to Watt, “IPOs for small-cap and mid-cap companies will be few and far between.”
