Keynote Panel: Deal Origination and Drivers in DACH

The German economy has remained resilient in the face of rising interest rates, surging inflation and war in Europe. Recently, Germany’s rising inflation rate has slowed, and employment rates have picked up; largely driven by the government’s gas price break. However, dealmakers globally have experienced plunging M&A activity since 2021’s record highs. Looking to the future, experts cite ample dry powder amongst financial sponsors as a driver for dealmaking to rebound in 2023 and point to activity in the TMT sector as a hotspot. This panel will discuss:

o    What is the current deal pipeline in the DACH region?
o    How are corporates and private equity professionals originating deals?
o    What are corporates doing to ‘recession-proof’ their businesses?
o    How are M&A deals being financed in 2023?
