The North American M&A market has entered a much more uncertain period and dealmakers must adopt new techniques and strategies in negotiations in order to complete a transaction.
The M&A market unfolded at a breakneck speed since the start of 2021 but a number of factors are now weighing on activity – geopolitical turmoil, mounting inflation, a weak stock market and rising regulatory enforcement. Announced M&A volumes in the US slumped by more than 40% last year. Buyers are more cautious and are deploying new techniques to allocate risk, while acquirers are biding their time and undertaking greater due diligence on acquisition targets.
How is economic and regulatory uncertainty impacting dealmaking? What are the best practices for dealmakers to adopt at this time? Are many deals being abandoned or paused? How much longer is it taking to complete on a deal? What will the hottest sectors be in 2023?
Join us live on Thursday, February 2, in partnership with The Financial Times, for a discussion with senior industry experts. The panel will provide a key forward-looking market outlook for the North American M&A market and explore the risks and opportunities that this new dealmaking environment presents.
