The 2019 M&A landscape certainly did not lack in market-moving transactions. We saw several of the largest deals take place in the Defense, Healthcare, and Technology sectors – but will 2019 trends continue into 2020, or will new areas of opportunity emerge in the M&A space? Will geopolitical matters such as Brexit or the 2020 U.S. presidential election greatly impact future deal activity?

As part of our quarterly M&A webinar series, join the first webinar of the year for a review of 2019 M&A global transactions, top deals, and sector activity. Our panel of experts will discuss the M&A landscape and topics including:
  • Capital Formation
  • EBITDA Trends
  • Private Equity Markets
