2020 February, 24 – MediaPost (USA) — Madison Avenue’s acquisitions marketplace has slowed down dramatically over the past few years, turning in just 51 deals among the major agency holding companies and management consultants in 2019, according to the latest annual tally from consultant COMvergence.

That’s about half the volume of deals being conducted just a couple of years ago, and is down 57% from 2016, the last year for which COMvergence discloses data in this year’s report.
