Frank Aquila Interviewed on Impact of Increasing M&A Regulation

July 14, 2021

Frank Aquila appeared on Bloomberg TV's “Bloomberg Markets” to discuss the impact that increasing regulation under the Biden administration will have on M&A activity. Most recently, President Biden signed an executive order calling for regulatory agencies to increase scrutiny on proposed mergers and crack down on anti-competitive practices across a range of industries.

Frank said the increased regulatory activity is unlikely to slow dealmaking: “It's been a busy first half [of 2021], and I think the second half is going to be equally busy—and if this regulation does anything, I think it's going to motivate boards and managements to try to move forward quickly with deals they're considering,” Frank said.
