NEW YORK, NY, JANUARY 11, 2008–Berkery Noyes, the leading investment bank providing mergers and acquisition advisory services to middle-market media, information and technology companies, announces the publication of its 2008 annual OUTLOOK + STRATEGIES. The complete report is now available online at http://www.berkerynoyes.com/visit/OS2008A.aspx

Now in its sixth consecutive year, this annual report provides analyses of key Information and Technology sectors by Berkery Noyes managing directors, whose insightful recaps of the year just ended, and forecasts for the year ahead, are invaluable tools used by C-level executives for strategic and financial planning.

OUTLOOK + STRATEGIES covers six dynamic information segments: Education; Media, Marketing & Information Services; Business, Financial Information & Services; Healthcare Information; Publishing; and Information, Technology, Software & Services. While each of these market sectors has distinct characteristics, there is one overarching theme that pertains to all of them: the climate for middle-market mergers and acquisitions is strong and likely to remain strong well into 2008.

“Despite reports of tighter credit and continuing volatility in equity markets, the M&A environment for mid-sized information and technology companies continues to be favorable,” said Joseph W. Berkery, Founder and President of Berkery Noyes. “In fact, Berkery Noyes was able to close nine transactions in the closing six weeks of 2007.”

The 2008 OUTLOOK + STRATEGIES will be published in hard copy in March. Copies are available by calling (212) 668-3022 or via the Berkery Noyes web site at www.berkerynoyes.com
