M&A Update - Three U.S. deals this week; Two in PA and one in WY
COMMENTARY & INSIGHT

This week we report three domestic deals between buyers and sellers headquartered in the same state. Year-to-date, intrastate deal-making accounts for 37% of all transactions, however, similar to the economic downturn from 2007 to 2009, we expect this number to rise steadily over the near-term as buyers and sellers combat market challenges by migrating to more defensive deal-making strategies.
