Frank Aquila was featured in a December 30 article in The Wall Street Journal reflecting on the past year in M&A and the outlook for 2019. The feature highlighted Frank's work on one of the year's biggest energy deals, Andeavor's $23 billion merger with Marathon Petroleum Corp. Looking back at 2018, Frank said that he had expected the second half of the year to be more active on the M&A front than it was. Looking ahead, he told the WSJ that since M&A has become part of the ordinary decision-making at large companies, we will not “go through the type of boom and bust we've seen in prior periods.”
