A Q4 Torys Quarterly article on the Canadian oil and gas sector and its influence on M&A and hostile activity was featured in PE Hub Canada.
Calgary-based Partners Stephanie Stimpson, John Emanoilidis and Michael Pedlow, along with Toronto associate Andrew Cooley, coauthored the piece “State of Play in Canadian Oil and Gas M&A,” originally published in the Q4 fall edition of the Torys Quarterly.
A small excerpt of the article is below.
We expect investment and M&A activity in the clean energy sector to carry on, as more companies set clean energy targets and Canada continues to focus on becoming a global leader in the sector.
Companies looking to acquire or divest of clean energy assets can find attractive opportunities, resulting from significant investment in prior years.
Lastly, we expect hostile M&A in the energy sector to keep pace with activity in recent years as companies continue to pursue opportunities given current valuations and accretive deal metrics.
See the latest Q4 Torys Quarterly for relevant legal insights focused on sector influences and news related to USMCA, hostile M&A in the oil patch and the influence of technology on the changing rules of corporate governance.
