Jen: This is the PKF Texas – Entrepreneur’s Playbook®. I’m Jen Lemanski, and I’m here Chris Hatten, the leader of our transaction advisory services practice. Chris, welcome back to the Playbook.
Chris: It’s my pleasure to be here.
Jen: So, Chris, how would you describe the current state of the M&A markets?
Chris: Well, if I had one word, I would say “hot.” Right now, it’s probably the busiest I can recall it being in my career. I think what kicked it off for us is a lot of the sell-side transaction once people came out of COVID and were ready to get going again.
Jen: So, is that the main driver or are you seeing other factors in what’s making M&A markets so hot?
