I recently noted that in IBBA's MarketPulse (fourth quarter 2012), it was reported that for the first time in history, baby boomer retirement is the number one reason driving owners to exit their businesses in the lower middle market sector. The Pew Research Center in the US estimates that from 2011 for the next 19 years, 10,000 baby boomers a day will reach the age of 65. In 1971, 6.8% of Quebec’s population was 65 years or older. In 2006, 14% and by 2056, 28% of the population will be 65 or older.


Mergers and acquisitions continue to help the big get bigger in an effort to reduce costs, reach more customers and expand their product lines.
