Maybe M&A Isn't So Terrible After All
I guess we were too fast to say that M&A had struck a real low note. Obviously the industry is not as healthy as it once was but it is definitely not as bad as we had thought. As recently as the last week of August it was believed that monthly lows in M&A had reached its lowest point since 1994, however after a stellar week, capped by deals involving Disney and Skype among others, August was only the worst we've seen since last November. Not that horrible. Of course its too early to say that things are in full recovery but its definitely not as bad as it once seemed.
