Merger and acquisition activity in the first half of this year has slowed from its rapid pace in 2021 after reaching $5.9 trillion. Internationally, deal volume and deal value are down 20 to 30 percent in 2022.
With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, inflation and interest rates soaring, and the stock market showing bearish indicators, deal makers have faced challenges since the start of 2022. But as the fourth quarter of 2022 approaches, the drive for acquisitions is still vigorous. Based on performance through the first half of the year, 2022 could reach $4.7 trillion in deal value by year-end.
To successfully navigate a sale or expansion, it’s helpful to understand the dynamics and any issues that might arise during the sale process. M&A specialists provide a wealth of knowledge and experience to help businesses achieve their goals.
An ever-present challenge in M&A is securing funding—not just securing funding, but finding the right funding source to meet your needs. That’s why The Funding Strategies Conference is holding a free educational webinar on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at 2 p.m. ET to discuss Opportunity Funding—The Path to Smart Growth Through Acquisition and Expansion.

By joining the webinar, you’ll receive critical, objective information to present sound recommendations to your company’s leadership. You’ll also gather knowledge to better anticipate market trends, leverage your assets for growth, and prepare for expansion, acquisitions, and recapitalization.
