Global mergers and acquisitions volumes reduced drastically in the second part of 2022. However, despite rising interest rates, the energy crisis, and shifting regulation, M&A is demonstrating strong resilience, with private equity dealmakers still keen on deploying capital and corporates seeking financing to continue business operations and generate revenue. To meet these expectations, dealmakers need to innovate and reconfigure their business models in response to market uncertainty.
Post-pandemic, the technology sector dominated deal volume, but investor sentiment has cooled since, with high-profile insolvencies expected to continue throughout 2023. Thus, private equity funds might take advantage of distressed or special situations by participating in full acquisitions or providing more creative funding solutions to distressed businesses. In tandem, regulatory frameworks are becoming more rigid, with a particular focus on ESG. Questions remain as to whether dealmakers are prepared for shifting regulation whilst facing a more challenging financing environment. Furthermore, with the rise of Chat GPT and competitor alternatives, how are dealmakers using the latest technological innovations to optimise dealmaking?
This webinar, organised by the Financial Times in association with Intralinks, will bring together dealmakers to explore the latest M&A and financing trends and analyse efficient strategies for boosting resilience through the ongoing economic turmoil across multiple sectors.
The big picture, not just the individual strands of the business you work in
And build relationships with some of the biggest names in your industry
