Frank Aquila Talks to MarketWatch About Megadeal Surge

September 2, 2020

S&C global head of M&A Frank Aquila spoke to MarketWatch about the recent rise in large M&A transactions and what the boom may mean for future M&A deals. “A coalescence of deals on hold coming back to life, central banks providing copious amounts of cheap liquidity, and companies seeking growth [have] led to an M&A boom as deal makers have returned from pandemic enforced seclusion,” Frank said.
 
Frank added that the surge is likely just the beginning of a return to M&A activity in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Unless there is a significant economic shutdown in the coming months, M&A activity will likely remain at near record levels through at least the end of 2020 and likely well into 2021.”
