Jordan, Edmiston’s top 10 reasons a media M&A rebound is likely this year

Published on .

New York—The mergers and acquisitions market for the media and information industry will be “stronger than recent headlines suggest,” according to Jordan, Edmiston Group.

The media investment bank issued a press release containing the “top 10 reasons why M&A will be stronger in 2009.”

The No. 1 reason is that media, marketing and technology companies are “pruning the portfolio,” trimming noncore assets in an attempt to make acquisitions of high-growth businesses. No. 2 is the “retooling imperative.” It is now a necessity for media companies to retool for digital, and many are looking to acquire digital businesses.

The other eight reasons can be found at www.jegi.com.
