A new M&A
Corporate Development Report from Merrill DataSite and mergermarket was released this past
week. It addresses the M&A outlook for the coming year. They
report finding a largely positive view toward M&A deal volume and deal
values for the upcoming 12 months, with 76% of the corporate executives and
investment bankers interviewed anticipating increasing deal volume and 65% of
them expecting deal values to increase in the same period.
The report also includes responses regarding approaches
to corporate development within the organizations of the executives
interviewed, with half of the executives reporting that corporate development
executives are actively involved in post merger integration and more than a
third reporting that post merger integration activities are maintained
completely separate from corporate development.
