In Business Celebrated in 2021

Note from Nolan's President: Patrick Nolan

Resilience Proliferates in 2021.

Global pandemic. Labor shortages. Supply chain nightmares. Inflation.

It seems nearly every conversation we had over the past year centralized on one of these challenges. Business owners had to find ways to navigate complexities not before seen in their careers. Private equity and strategic acquirers had to underwrite sizeable profitability shifts with the hope that the new-norm was in fact the new-norm and not the crest of the most recent cycle. Despite a litany of challenges, when it was all said and done, the M&A record books were shattered in 2021 with new heights reached in deal volume and transaction dollars.

Having numerous delayed transactions carry over from COVID-impacted 2020 and many business owners trying to get their companies sold in advance of anticipated tax increases, the number of companies on the market in 2021 was through the roof and stretched the bandwidth of nearly everyone in the M&A community, us at Nolan included. Our team members stepped up with creativity, tenacity, patience and endurance to help our clients achieve their goals while setting new records for our firm. I’m reminded nearly everyday of how great it is to work alongside the team members at Nolan and the collective experience of 2021 squarely reinforced that sentiment.

We are off and running in 2022 and hope to cross paths with you very soon.
