M&A in France: Deal Momentum, SPACs, and Trends in 2021

Webinar in partnership with Les Echos - Capital Finance

DATE : Thursday, May 20, 2021

TIME: 2:30PM CET

M&A transactions appear to be on the rebound after an encouraging end to 2020 and positive start in Q1 2021.

Despite the economic and global uncertainty of last year, French dealmakers are observing a strong recovery in M&A. Companies have demonstrated their ability to adapt in this new environment. The resistance of financial markets and the resilience of private equity, helped by a massive injection of liquidity from central banks, provides hope for an increase in transactions in the coming months. However, many questions still remain.

Join our live webinar to hear from leading advisors in France as they discuss the defining trends for the year ahead:

  • Sectors with the most opportunities for 2021
  • The impact of COVID on M&A
  • The impact of SPACs in the short- and medium-term
  • Managing ESG returns and requirements 
  • The digitization of M&A processes  
  • A debate moderated by Anne Drif, M&A journalist at Les Echos.
