Hilfinger Quoted on M&A Trends in Michigan

02 March 2017 Crain's Detroit News

Partner Steve Hilfinger was quoted in a Crain’s Detroit article, “Technology drove Michigan's mergers and acquisitions last year,” covering the effects of technology on the market and the expectation for automotive and health care M&A to remain active in 2017.

Hilfinger was quoted saying “as companies look at how to accelerate development of autonomous and connected vehicles…the fastest way to close the technology gap is to make an acquisition.”

Hilfinger also addressed 2017 trends, including regulatory changes within the new administration. He highlighted business-positive policy changes on the horizon, “including potential tax depreciation expansions, reduced corporate tax rate and relaxing of antitrust rules,” and explained that these changes “could, potentially, push deals across the finish line even if other regulatory changes create issues.”
