ANZ Deal Momentum: Managing Valuations in Volatile Times

Date: 22 April, 2021

Time: 11:00am AEST

Virtual briefing in partnership with Mergermarket, an Acuris company

Australia is a stand-out among the OECD economies in its response and significant economic recovery from COVID-19. While it has not avoided the severe economic impact, financial market volatility and investment uncertainty that has afflicted global economies and financial markets, Australia’s economy and M&A activity has recovered strongly. Mergermarket data shows Australia’s M&A value in Q4 2020 amounted to nearly USD 23.8bn over 169 deals, more than double the figures recorded in Q2 and Q3. Meanwhile, New Zealand M&A value in Q1 2021 has totaled USD 3.9bn, surpassing the combined value of the previous three quarters.

Expectations are fairly united that the economy will remain buoyant and M&A activity will be busy over 2021, well ahead of most other major economies that are still in the midst of severe health crises while their vaccination programmes get underway in earnest.

In this live discussion with Macquarie Group, Computershare Limited, Advent Partners, Herbert Smith Freehills and Pitcher Partners, we take stock of M&A activity in ANZ and consider, the outlook for the rest of the year.
