Summer is officially over and we’re ready to get back into the swing of things. If this summer is any indication of M&A for the remainder of the year, we can expect robust deal activity. Typically we see fewer transactions over the summer, particularly in August, but this year we saw $293 billion in global mergers and acquisitions, an increase of 83% when compared to the previous year.
Already, just two days into September, a couple of interesting deals have been announced:
- Norwegian Cruise to Buy Prestige Cruises for $3 Billion
- 1-800-Flowers to Buy Harry & David
- Heineken to Sell Mexican Packaging Unit to Crown Holdings
