Partner John Emanoilidis has told Reuters confidence levels seem to be high after larger transactions and a spike in M&A activity this past quarter.
The article discusses the strong Canadian M&A activity seen in the third quarter of 2018 thanks to deals in sectors like mining and real estate. The article says this quarter “was the strongest period for Canadian mining M&A since the second quarter of 2011.”
“The multibillion-dollar transactions are the best indicators of confidence levels in deal makers,” John told Reuters.
“We’re seeing a great deal of money competing for deals and some very robust action processes.”
This week Torys was ranked first in Canadian M&A deal value by Bloomberg.
