Maximizing Shareholder Value Since 1983

Q3 2010

De Bellas & Co., the #1 Staffing Industry Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”) investment banking firm for over twenty five years, having advised on over 170 completed Staffing M&A transactions, reported today that 26 staffing related businesses were acquired or merged in Q3 2010. This brings the total number of completed transactions this year to 72, which is 21% higher than the first three quarters of 2009. Healthcare Staffing and IT

Services continued to outpace overall M&A activity.

Staffing companies were acquirers’ in about 85% of M&A transactions in Q3 of 2010. “Staffing related companies, both public and private, led the way as market activity continues to increase.” commented Royal J. Brown II, a Managing Director with De Bellas & Co. Al De Bellas, President, added, “We expect a high level of activity in Q4 because sellers are motivated to complete a transaction in 2010 to avoid the increase in capital gains tax which would be caused if the Bush tax cuts are not extended.”
