View 2016 Year in Review

A STRONG YEAR

In 2016, Lazard’s middle market advisory practice completed 188 middle market transactions worldwide, including 84 involving North American companies, with an aggregate value of more than $21 billion in value.

TRANSACTION MIX 

Mergers and acquisitions comprised 153 of our middle market transactions, including 94 sell-side and 59 buy-side. Our restructuring practice was quite busy with 15 assignments, reflecting continued stress in energy, mining, and other sectors. We also completed 20 corporate finance advisory transactions.

TAILORED SOLUTIONS

We believe in highly-customized transactions that fit client circumstances, rather than rigid M&A auctions. Similarly, our growing team in corporate finance provides tailored debt and equity solutions for acquisitions, growth, and capital structure.
