Finding New Opportunities in a New World: M&A Momentum in the USA

Part 4 of "M&A Momentum in the Americas" 
Webinar On-Demand
In partnership with Mergermarket

What a difference a year makes. The economy is reopening and in recovery, a new stimulus package is about to hit, and Q1 saw a surge in M&A activity.

With this backdrop, it looks like M&A professionals will have an exceptionally busy year, but that doesn’t mean that finding real value will be easy, especially in a world turned upside down.

In this on-demand webinar, our prestige panel of US M&A experts will discuss: 

  • What is driving the surge in new deals? 
  • Who’s buying, corporates or private equity?  
  • Will technology and industrials continue to dominate, and does that leave opportunities in other less attractive sectors? 
  • Will we see more opportunities in distressed M&A or is that trend over?

Democratization of private equity

The emergence of retail investor/public investor money coming into private equity and several investment platforms are really starting to ‘democratize’ access to private equity. Is this connected with the growing number of IPOs that we are seeing for PE firms?
