The timing for mergers and acquisitions is not dependent upon economic factors but it can be affected by them, says Joel Sinkin, President of Transition Advisors, LLC and an expert in accounting M&A. Economic factors are more likely to change the focus of an M&A rather than if they are in play. And other factors, such as succession planning, play a role in both timing and number of M&As.
