Outlook for cross-border M&A remains strong

“Beyond Border” a global cross-border M&A report, published this week by MergerMarket in collaboration with Herbert Smith Freehills, suggests that the flurry of M&A activity in 2015 is set to continue with many companies continuing to prioritise M&A as a key growth strategy and a strong interest in cross-border deals particularly for companies in North America, India and South East Asia.

Out of the 700 global executives surveyed across multiple sectors, businesses in the technology, telecommunications and media (TMT) sectors are reporting the highest levels of on-going M&A (including cross-border deals) as a key component in their growth strategies.
