The recovery of M&A activity toward the end of 2020 continues to accelerate in 2021, and as valuations remain high, we see targets coming from a growing pool of sellers. Paused deals have re-emerged, private equity still has record amounts of dry powder to deploy, and companies that were hit hard during the pandemic are reassessing strategies and noncore assets. What sectors will see opportunity during the recovery? What obstacles may affect deal flow? How will the new presidential administration’s laws and regulations on tax, trade, healthcare and the environment change the landscape? What role will M&A play in the overall global economic recovery?
