Frank Aquila Discusses Potential Impact of Political Turmoil in Egypt in Deal Video

February 1, 2011

On February 1, Mr. Aquila was featured in a video interview for The Deal Pipeline. In the interview, Mr. Aquila discussed the possible impact of the political upheaval in Egypt on the global economy. “External forces can interrupt an otherwise active M&A cycle,” he said, citing as examples Enron and the Russian default. Given Egypt's strategic importance to the oil industry, turmoil there could pose a threat to worldwide M&A, Mr. Aquila said. Although, he added, “usually that's not where the problems come from.”
