15TH ANNUAL MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS OUTLOOK SURVEY
Mergers & Acquisitions
In our 15th annual survey, we polled senior executives
and advisers across the nation—CEOs, CFOs,
owners, managing directors and other professionals
involved in M&A activity within their respective
ﬁrms—to measure their experiences and outlook on
mergers and acquisitions in the coming year.
We would like to thank all survey respondents
for their time and insights.

Thirty-three percent of respondents to Dykema’s 15th
annual M&A Outlook Survey are bullish about deal-making
in the U.S. over the next 12 months. That’s down from 65
percent in 2018, which reﬂected jubilation in the wake of
the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in late 2017.
