Panel discussion – Value creation strategies to support deal activity in Italy

Geopolitics have become more than just background, actively influencing the M&A markets, bringing cross-border activity under closer scrutiny and giving investors cause for caution.

In addition, deal value is likely to remain under pressure as debt financing for large cap leveraged buyouts is scarce. However, even though the signs of change are subtle, the M&A market in Italy is persevering, demonstrating remarkable resilience and optimism. So, how do we create value in more challenging times? How can we reduce the distance between buyer and seller in a slow market?
