Last week we brought you UK merger and acquisition (M&A) activity, up next is North America. Encompassing both the United States of America and Canada, mergers refer to an agreement that unites two existing companies into one new company, where as an acquisition is a corporate action in which one company purchases most or all of another company's shares to gain control of that company.
The merger and acquisition (M&A) world has endured and recovered from past economic crises, including the recent traumas such as the burst of the .com bubble in 2000-2002 and the great recession of 2007-2009. Ruby Datum explores M&A transaction history across some of the biggest industry sectors whilst understanding the true impacts on the industries of COVID-19.
As we know, COVID-19 has caused problems for many industries, and the legal industry appears to be no different. With specific impacts to mergers and acquisitions (M&A), it is important, now more than ever, to look ahead at the potential longevity of the pandemic’s effects and how its challenges can be overcome.
