Holt Foster Quoted in The Dallas Morning News on Texas M&A Activity

“Merger mania continues for Texas companies in first quarter”
 
Deal making among oil and gas exploration and production companies in Texas took a nosedive in the first three months of the year.
 
But new data show that merger and acquisition activity in several other business sectors, including health care, technology, business services and retail, continued at near record highs for the quarter. The energy pipeline sector also continued to sizzle.
 
Holt Foster, a corporate law partner at Thompson & Knight in Dallas, said M&A is fueled by a growing economy, increased employment, low interest rates and access to capital.
 
“All of those factors are positive right now and make this an ideal environmental for M&A,” Foster said.
