Washington, D.C. – Olsen Palmer Managing Partner Christopher Olsen was recently asked by SNL Financial to discuss the current state of the bank M&A landscape and key themes therein.
SNL Financial noted that the number of U.S. bank and thrift deals with a value of $200 million and below grew for the third straight year in 2014 and accounted for about half of the total volume of deals announced in 2014. In the article, Mr. Olsen addresses several of the key drivers behind this ongoing uptick in both overall M&A activity as well as in transaction pricing.
