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?
