Optimism or More Headwinds? State of M&A After a Challenging Year (Webinar)



2023 was a challenging year for dealmakers. From elevated interest rates to tighter regulations to geopolitical conflict, M&A activity continued to decline from the highs seen in 2021. Potential stability in rates, pent-up demand, and pushes to consolidate or divest in certain industries may drive an uptick in future M&A activity. Will this be enough to drive a rebound in 2024, or will we see more of the same?

Join us as we dive into

  • Hurdles that impacted 2023’s M&A activity, and which ones will persist in 2024
  • The future of exits after longer-than-expected holding periods
  • How the rapid growth in private credit could help jolt M&A activity
  • Tech and Energy sectors providing the greatest area of opportunity for dealmakers
