Recent M&A Transactions

Mergers & Acquisitions

Happy New Year! The Stump team is looking forward to 2024 and what we believe will be an improving M&A environment. We also reflect back to 2023, which matched our record for number of completed transactions, despite a reported 30% drop in total M&A deals across the broader U.S. market. Our fourth quarter was huge, with five significant deals closing around year end (some pushed to early January to delay taxes - a frequently used legal tactic).

Congratulations to our clients, and best wishes to all these buyers in the new year ahead.

We expect M&A to accelerate in 2024 as we maintain a healthy backlog of sell-side assignments, including companies in the following sectors:

  • Domestic upholstery manufacturing
  • Hospitality furniture
  • Flooring distribution
  • Lighting and decor
  • Casual/outdoor furniture

Call us, let’s start a conversation.

For those going to Las Vegas for the Winter Market, we look forward to seeing you there.
