CNBC's Fast Money - March 9, 2009

SULLIVAN & CROMWELL LLP Partner Frank Aquila was interviewed on CNBC by Dylan Ratigan and the "Fast Money" traders, discussing recent pharma acquisitions and the ongoing consolidation in the healthcare sector. Noting that the challenge to many boards of directors is getting financing, Mr. Aquila said that “once we see stability in the market then, I think we see more deals.” He expressed optimism for more deals in the pharma and healthcare sectors, and added that he expects to see consolidation in the banking sector.
