The presentation will address lessons from M&A activity. It will also address sectors of special interest in the current M&A environment. The year 2015 saw a record number of M&A deals, and many of those are related to specific sectors – mainly health, energy, natural resources and technology, although in the financial arena and the retail market there has also been a considerable number of deals. The panel will address the main factors that, according to the market and relevant reports, have triggered activity in such sectors as well as the most relevant issues faced by companies in such transactions including regulatory aspects.
