Mergermarket M&A Forum - Australia

The premier M&A forum in Australia

Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney and Online

Australian M&A reached record highs in 2021 with Mergermarket data showing Australian mergers and acquisition deal value topping $306 billion, a 225% increase over 2020’s $94 billion. The dealmaking spree is showing no signs of slowing down in 2022 as buyers take advantage of Australia’s reopening of its borders to seal their deals.

Against that backdrop of continued market optimism, the Mergermarket M&A Forum - Australia , co-hosted by Mergermarket and AVCJ, will be returning this year to Sydney and online, bringing together leading corporate investors, private equity fund managers and M&A advisors for an exclusive gathering focused on the opportunities in the Australian M&A landscape.

Through a series of interactive panel discussions, data presentations and in-depth case studies, the event will provide the participants with insights into the latest trends, challenges and solutions available for those pursuing Australian M&A.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What were the drivers behind the mega-deal activity in 2021, and can 2022 carry the same level of momentum?
  • How will macro factors including the federal election supply chain issues and inflation impact corporate activity in the region?
  • Where are private equity managers finding the best opportunities and will GPs be more active in 2022?
  • How will ESG considerations continue to drive deal flow in Australia?
  • Will we see more activity from super funds in public M&A deals?
