This informative and timely webinar will provide you with 2009 results as well as current trends in insurance brokerage M&A that will impact the market for both buyers and sellers.
M&A activity in 2009 was one of the least active by number of deals in the last 10 years. We will discuss prior year results and current trends that will impact the overall insurance brokerage/agency M&A market for buyers and sellers. Whether interested in buying or selling, participants will come away with an understanding of current trends in transaction pricing and structuring. Understanding the "truths from the myths" in valuations and deal structures is half the battle in today's M&A marketplace. Reserve your Webinar seat now, Space is limited.
