Ardian's Fandozzi Eyes Plastics and Chemical Company Deals in 2017

Vincent Fandozzi, tells TheStreet he sees lots of middle-market M&A opportunities for private equity buyouts in the plastics and chemical sector in 2017.

Vincent Fandozzi, head of North America direct buyouts at Paris-based investment company Ardian, tells TheStreet he sees lots of middle-market M&A opportunities for private equity buyouts in the plastics and chemical sector in 2017 and that the lower middle market sector is "pretty stable" in the industrial sector he focuses on. He says prices in the lower middle market will continue to be "tough" from a buyers standpoint next year. However, Fandozzi said he believes opportunities will emerge in 2017 with owner-operated companies looking for institutional capital first time as their operators start to think about generational planning.
