Panel: The current state of the US M&A market

According to Mergermarket data, US M&A rebounded in 2Q23, reaching USD 382bn, a 34% increase compared to 1Q23, but still lagging behind M&A volumes in 2022.  Despite headwinds, the economy has, so far, defied predictions of a recession, and a reset in the debt markets, attractive valuations, availability of capital and cash-rich corporates on the lookout for bargains should also create new opportunities for dealmaking in the region, whilst a more resilient stock market may signal the awakening of the IPO market. Our panel of regional M&A experts and corporates will discuss dealmaking trends, top sectors, challenges and unpack what lies ahead in 2024.

  • How has the rapidly changing US economic outlook shaped M&A trends, and are experts more optimistic about the year ahead?
  • Regional view: how has the M&A opportunity set in South Florida evolved in the past year, and what are the top trends and sectors in the region for deal flow?
  • IPO outlook- are we seeing a resurgence in IPOs, and what does this mean for the M&A markets?
  • As we head into 2024, what opportunities and challenges lie ahead from both a financial sponsor and strategic corporate perspective?
