When it comes to dealmaking in Europe, acquirers are increasingly looking outside their borders for growth while targets from this area are seeing more salvation from offers from foreign buyers. Will this trend continue or will Europe's fragile economies put a slow down on cross border acquisitions? Join The Deal in a 60-minute webcast entitled "Following a road more traveled: European Cross Border M&A Deals". We'll focus our discussion on leading sectors that are seeing outbound and inbound activity in cross border M&A in Europe. We'll also look at the reasons for this trend as well as the stumbling blocks such as integration issues that companies should consider in cross border deals.
