2018 M&A Year in Review

On the back of a steadily improving global economy, companies are starting to regain the confidence to move past global uncertainties and market volatility. Our M&A Year in Review considers a number of ambitious transactions last year, including the $33bn bid for Westfield and Downer EDI’s $1.2bn off-market takeover for Spotless. 

Our report highlights some of the key findings, statistics and current directions in market practice and strategy, drawn from our analysis of announced public M&A deals. As ever, we take pride in this being a report with a difference – Corrs goes beyond the statistics to provide you with analysis on how our findings impact the strategy and success of a public M&A transaction.

We hope you enjoy this year’s review and we are happy to assist with any requests for more detailed information or statistics from our database.
