Opportunistic M&A – Upside Potential in a Downturn Environment

M&A Research

In yesterday’s Financial Times, Frontier Strategy Group Director of Global Research Matthew Lasov wrote an article entitled, Emerging Markets: Time is Ripe for Acquisitions. Lasov argues that as managers seek to meet or exceed ambitious growth targets during the next year, the pace of merger and acquisition activity (M&A) in emerging markets is likely to return to and exceed levels last seen in 2007.

The three drivers that will push managers to execute quickly on M&A opportunities are:

  • The likelihood of a double-dip recession in developed economies
  • Multinationals hold record-high cash reserves
  • Scarcity of quality M&A targets in emerging markets

Lasov expands on his analysis in an exclusive Frontier Strategy Group white paper titled, Opportunistic M&A – Upside Potential in a Downturn Environment.
