Quarterly Deal Update – Q3 2018


 The third quarter showed a decline in transaction volume in Central Texas, which was in line with the rest of the country. Despite the decline in the number of deals, the average deal size in Central Texas rose from $11.8 million to $55.5 million, inclusive of three transactions in excess of $200 million. When omitting the three transactions, average deal size still increased approximately 76%, or $9 million, from the prior quarter. M&A experts remain optimistic that the fourth quarter and 2019 will be robust for deal making due to the abundance of private equity “dry powder” needing to be deployed into quality businesses.
