Trends in Expansion through Acquisitions



In the latter part of 2011, Merrill DataSite in partnership with the Association of Corporate Growth (ACG) conducted an online survey and in-depth interviews with M&A dealmakers. This report explores the driving factors in acquisition strategies, the appetite for acquisitions, the trends in size and type and the threats to closing a deal in today’s economic climate. Noting current factors such as the buyer/seller impact on acquisitions and the increasing issue of strong corporate balance sheets, this piece provides an insight into the future of M&A and reflects upon the economic instability of the past year and its effect on dealmaking.
