FINANCIAL PRINTING - A Bull Without Horns?

December 2000
The year 2000 brought a myriad of activity in the financial printing segment, from a slowing economy to a number of printer acquisitions.


BY CAROLINE MILLER


The end of 1999 will be recorded by many in the financial printing industry as one of the best years in modern history. However, the dawn of the new millennium found the financial printing market feeling the effects of a slowing economy. The year 2000 saw uncertain demand in capital markets activity, most noticeably the softening of IPO and mergers and acquisitions in the third quarter, leading to a significant slowdown in the number of deals brought to the market in the fourth quarter.
