The M&A market has survived the current volatile environment of global and geopolitical uncertainty in robust health. Cross-border deals and disruptive transactions continue to prevail, as shareholders back smart and strategic deals and companies continue to search for the technologies and capabilities needed to be competitive. The passing of U.S. tax reform will have a profound impact on companies and their M&A strategy, while private equity firms continue to look for the right targets on which to deploy their stockpiled capital.
The Deal Economy conference explores the most effective strategies for deals and transactions, focusing on the opportunities and challenges facing dealmakers in 2019.
