Glanbia, DSW and Grubhub closed notable deals in November

Dealmaking in November continued apace, with Glanbia's acquisition of Slim-Fast, Grubhub's deal for Tapingo and DSW's purchase of Camuto are among the transactions that closed. The mid-term elections were also top of mind. The private equity industry will focus on educating lawmakers newly elected in the mid-terms. Pam Hendrickson, the chief operating officer of middle-market private equity firm the Riverside Co., tells Mergers & Acquisitions in a Q&A: Post-election priority for private equity: educating nearly 100 new members of Congress. Matthew O’Loughlin, partner and co-chair of the mergers and acquisitions practice with Manatt, Phelps & Phillips LLP says momentum in the middle market is likely to continue. See: It's been a good year for M&A. Will momentum continue post election?

Editor's note: To measure activity in the middle market, Mergers & Acquisitions looks at transactions that fulfill several requirements: Deals must have a value of roughly $1 billion or less; they must be completed (not just announced) within the timeframe designated; the coverage is global. Excluded from our charts are: recapitalizations; self-tenders; exchange offers; repurchases; stake purchases; and transactions with undisclosed buyers or sellers. Our data provider is Thomson Reuters, which updates its databases continuously. We use the data available at press time.
