Lessons to be learned from the rumored Target acquisition

In our last post, we highlighted the potential for 2018 to be another banner year for mergers and acquisitions. The new tax reform bill will potentially free up cash for companies to make acquisitions to strengthen their place in the marketplace and to put them in strategic positions for future growth.

Reasons for small businesses to celebrate this holiday season

The holiday season is traditionally set for year-end parties to celebrate the accomplishments a company made during the year. While this undoubtedly is a reality for many small businesses, it would not be surprising to see such celebrations because of what is expected to come in 2018.

If you have been following our blog, you know that venture capital deals have declined in the New York area in second quarter of this year. A PricewaterhouseCoopers report has revealed that a third quarter count of deals made during Q3 were limited to 999. The first quarter of 2013 was the last time the deal count headed below 1000. If your young company is searching for funding, these statistics do not bode well for your bottom line.
