BDO 2021 Middle Market CFO Outlook Survey

January 2021


Bob Snape shared his insights with Mergers&Acquisitions on findings from the BDO Middle Market CFO Outlook Survey, including the optimism and appetite for deals coming from CFOs who are planning to seek PE investment, execute a merger or acquisition or pursue an IPO in 2021.

BDO’s 2021 CFO Outlook Survey polled 600 middle market CFOs across six key industries—Energy, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Retail and Technology—and was recently released. While the global pandemic forced a critical reflection period across every business, the middle market made the most of it. Middle market CFOs reconsidered what is truly essential and discovered new areas of opportunity.
