Angela Blake comments in Canadian Lawyer on the rapidly changing M&A deal landscape in Canada. "It's definitely not as frothy as it was this time last year, but it still is very, very busy, and last year was exceptional," says Blake. "For deals under $100 million and in a position to be done with a single bank's financing, there's still plenty of activity out there."
Angela also comments on:
- the gap in value expectations between some buyers and sellers as stock prices and valuations have dropped;
- M&A in the energy and mining sectors;
- why M&A in Q3 will likely be between parties that believe they can achieve long-term value, competitive strength or business synergies; and
- the optimism that a return to stability will encourage transactions.
