Alec Sherod Featured in Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal M&A Table of Experts

The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal (MSPBJ) has published a Table of Experts panel discussion about mergers and acquisitions, featuring Hellmuth & Johnson partner Alec Sherod.

When asked his predictions for M&A activity moving forward, Sherod responded, “I’m bullish on deal flow, valuations, all of the above. I think there’s a lot of money on the sidelines. In a lot of the industries that have been hurt by Covid, the trend lines can only look better in 2021. A lot of my clients are in manufacturing, and in general, manufacturing has done very well over the past 18 months. So I look for continued strong deal flow and valuations, no big clouds on the horizon. I’m knocking on wood super hard.”

When asked how business owners can best prepare for a transaction, Sherod shared, “I always think of organization and really how can we best make the due diligence process efficient and thorough both for the buyer and the seller. It could be as simple as keeping good corporate records. Contract administration always seems to be the biggest issue that comes up day to day, because it hits a lot of different areas, for example, third-party consent issues.”
