Chairman's Letter

Hello Friends,

As we reach the midpoint of the second quarter, we are encouraged by positive trends in Houston’s economic, employment, and M&A activity. Recently the Houston Business Journal reported, “The local economy is growing at a healthy pace as the Houston region continues to add jobs, grow its population, and see companies relocate and expand in the metropolitan area.” Employment growth is experiencing a bit of a slowdown compared to previous years, but it’s actually a down-throttling of strong growth bringing it back to normal, explained Greater Houston Partnership (GHP) economists. It is also encouraging that the Houston job market still ranks highly compared to other major metropolitan areas.

Additionally, Grant Thornton’s recent survey found that 81% of M&A professionals expect deal volume to increase. Philip Christy, managing director of transaction services for Grant Thornton, told the Houston Business Journal, “Professional and business services companies will continue to be active players in the M&A space this year with additional activity in the energy space.” This is exciting news as it could present opportunities for businesses looking to grow through acquisition or for those considering selling their company.

And speaking of mergers and acquisitions, Nico Kroeker joins our Corporate M&A group as a new associate. Welcome Nico!
