Over the past 10 months, Woodbridge International, a global mergers and acquisitions firm, closed 20 middle-market deals. All but one were sell-side and many were cross-border transactions.
Woodbridge’s clients included medical device manufacturers, software developers, chemical distributors, and various service providers operating in the U.S., China, Germany, Poland, Canada and Australia. More than half of the businesses sold were acquired as add-ons or platforms by strategic private equity firms based in the U.S. and abroad.
“Woodbridge is building on our 2016 momentum and is already off to a strong start in 2017, having just closed four deals in four different industries in January,” said Founder and CEO Robert Koenig. “The demand for middle-market companies is robust – and our global capabilities and unique underwriting process are attracting higher numbers of U.S. and foreign sellers. We expect 2017 will be a record year of deal closings for Woodbridge.”
