Frank Aquila Quoted in Wall Street Journal Article on Impact of Trump Election on M&A Activity

November 9, 2016

On November 9, Frank Aquila was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article titled “Trump Victory Likely to Pose Temporary Hiccup to Merger Activity.” The article discussed the potential impact of Donald Trump's election on the M&A market, suggesting that, while M&A activity may slow during the period of uncertainty in the wake of the election, the market will recover in the long term under a Trump presidency. “While Trump's election will create a period of uncertainty, ultimately a Republican president and GOP Congress will be more pro-business,” Frank said.
