Frank Aquila Discusses Potential for 2011 M&A Boom on CNBC

December 17, 2010

Mr. Aquila was a guest on the December 17 edition of CNBC's “Street Signs” where he discussed whether there would be an M&A boom in 2011 in light of the fact that 2010 saw the first gains in M&A in three years. “I certainly think we're headed for a good year,” he said. While generally very optimistic about 2011, he noted a number of factors that could limit M&A activity. “There are a lot of headwinds,” he said, “a lot of uncertainty coming out of Europe, not a lot of certainty about interest rates. Unemployment's very high.”
