The M&A markets continue to surprise and confound the experts. With the equity markets climbing into record territory in early 2013 and the debt markets continuing to experience favorable pricing, the environment seems ripe for a strong M&A rebound. Yet the M&A market remains choppy. The volatility in deal activity creates challenges and rewards preparedness. Now more than ever, it is critical for dealmakers and their counsel to stay abreast of the latest trends and forecasts. With the presidential election and the fiscal cliff behind us, will the slowly recovering markets of the last year give way to a faster-paced resurgence in 2013? How will buyers and sellers adjust their behavior in response to recent experience? How will economic developments drive merger strategy and tactics? How should companies be preparing for approaches by activists? Our expert faculty of lawyers, general counsels, regulators and investment bankers will explore the fascinating state of M&A and the trends you need to be aware of for the year ahead.
