Unlocking Growth in German M&A features four leaders in German M&A making predictions for 2015 particularly around deal size.
Top German M&A executives with Barclays, UniCredit Bank AG, DC Advisory GmbH and William Blair discuss some of the major themes driving German M&A in Unlocking Growth in German M&A, a Thomson Reuters International Financing Review roundtable in association with Merrill Corporation. Host Thomson Reuters holds that the numbers look pretty good for 2015, driven by a number of sizeable deals. The roundtable gives special attention to exploring the extent to which the mergers and acquisitions market in Germany will continue to be driven by megadeals. Roundtable participants also consider whether the real action will actually be found at the mid-market and smaller levels.
