Frank Aquila Discusses M&A Market in Reuters Article on Merger Monday Shadowed by Volatility

August 15, 2011

Mr. Aquila was quoted in an August 15 Reuters article, “Market Fears Damp Optimism on Merger Monday,” which explored dealmaker concerns over recent market volatility and its impact on M&A, despite a number of high-profile transactions announced that day, including Google Inc.’s $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. “This year is clearly a better year for M&A than last year,” Mr. Aquila told Reuters. “[All the] fundamentals are there for a strong M&A market and that will continue. Nothing that has happened over the last 10 days really changes those fundamentals.”
