There’s going to be “a pickup in M&A,” says Jim Freedman, chairman, Intrepid Investment Bankers LLC, reflecting on the Republican party’s winning the White House and both houses of Congress in the U.S. election. Mergers & Acquisitions spoke with Freedman and other transaction professionals at the 2016 ACG LA Business Conference at the Langham Huntington Hotel, Pasadena, California.
“The general consensus is that there will be a reduction in taxes," Freedman continues. "There will be a reduction in regulation. There will be more of a pro-business philosophy. I think those are all good things for the M&A industry. I’m pretty bullish on what this means for the M&A business.” Intrepid provides M&A, capital raising and strategic advisory services to entrepreneurs and middle-market companies.
