May 13, 2022

S&C Global Head of M&A Melissa Sawyer spoke on the panel, “Global M&A is Chasing Records,” at the Milken Institute on May 3. During the panel, which was covered by Bloomberg, Melissa discussed the impacts of global events – including the war in Ukraine, rising interest rates and inflation – on the dealmaking landscape.

According to Melissa, companies are focusing more on long-term plans and alternative commercial arrangements. Melissa reflected on recent trends, saying, “[W]e’ve seen a slowdown in the immediacy of deals people are looking at. People are nervous about doing things in the very near term.”
The Milken Institute is a nonpartisan think tank that gathers C-suite executives from Fortune 500 companies, global leaders, and innovators to rethink the way people look at health, finance, technology, philanthropy, industry, and media.
