2015 an eventful year for M&As [Video]

2015 was the year of mergers and acquisitions. Many industry analysts estimate that buyers spent a monumental $3.8 trillion on M&As last year. This figure far surpasses previous records.

This increase in M&A activity may be attributed to a bought-or-be-bought mentality prevalent in competitive industries. It also could be caused by the influx of new technologies and business practices within the marketplace.

Industry experts predict that this growth will continue into 2016 in industries such as technology, health care and telecommunications. Though the interest rates have been raised for the first time in almost a decade, most expect this will only lead to a temporary and small lag in M&A rates.

With the help of an experienced M&A advisor, you can navigate the M&A process with ease.
