Will 2022 be another exceptional year for the US M&A market?

April 21, 2022 | Virtual Event

On-demand webinar

In partnership with Financial Times Live

Last year was an outstanding year for M&A transactions globally and the US was the hottest market. Around $5.9 trillion of M&A deals took place globally in 2021 and the US market accounted for 45% of the deals.

US dealmakers were expecting 2022 to be another exceptional year but the Ukraine crisis could now dampen the market. It is leading to heightened economic uncertainty and skyrocketing oil and natural gas prices. Inflationary pressures are mounting. The West's security situation has also deteriorated markedly. Will American companies and investors want to continue with M&A transactions in these circumstances or could they enter a 'wait and see' mode?

Join us, in partnership with The Financial Times, for a discussion with senior industry experts including Datasite's Mark Williams, chief revenue officer, Americas. The panel will provide a forward-looking market outlook for the US M&A market and explore the risks and opportunities that this new dealmaking environment poses.

Topics include:
  • Will the Ukraine crisis bring the breakneck pace of dealmaking to a shuddering halt?
  • How prepared are corporate acquirers for a rise in funding costs?
  • Is the pandemic recovery leading corporates to target different kinds of company for acquisition? Are there deals to be made in historically undervalued sectors?
  • What extra due diligence is needed as a result of the Ukraine crisis, macro policy changes and growing ESG concerns?
  • Why are there so many M&A transactions among young public companies?
