S&C Global Head of M&A Frank Aquila Interviewed on Bloomberg TV

January 17, 2020

S&C global head of M&A Frank Aquila appeared on Bloomberg TV's “Bloomberg Surveillance” to offer his thoughts on the M&A outlook for 2020. “I think there's a huge backlog in M&A, particularly on the cross-border side,” Frank said. “2019 was really a story of mega-deals in North America…by and large, cross-border was slow. Europe was slow because of Brexit. Asia was slow because of the trade wars. I think those are areas where we're going to see a lot of activity this year.”
Frank also shared his thoughts on differentiating good M&A deals from bad ones, how companies can obtain growth in a slow-growth environment, and whether animal spirits are on the rise in the new year.
