Turning the Corner: M&A Momentum in Canada

On-Demand Webinar 
in partnership with Mergermarket

After a challenging few years the Canadian economy returned to growth in June, but what does the recovery mean for deal activity? In the M&A market the first quarter was very busy, but completions fell away in the second quarter. How many deals are in the pipeline now, and what are the challenges in closing them?

In partnership with Mergermarket, join us for our H1 Canada M&A spotlight, where our panel of experts will discuss both the current situation for dealmakers and what the rest of the year may hold, including:

  • Will a snap-election impact the recovery? 
  • After a first half dominated by strategic acquisitions will financial sponsors take over in the second half?
  • Will activity be dominated by domestic deals or cross-border acquisitions?
  • What sectors will drive activity?

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?
