    The last five years have been characterized by an extremely strong global M&A market, with deal volumes and values hitting all time highs.  Along with economic growth, the M&A market came to a screeching halt in 2020, driven primarily by the COVID-19 crisis, although global political and trade tensions arguably contributed somewhat to the decline.  M&A deal volumes and values tanked in Q2 2020, representing the worst quarter since Q3 2009 in the aftermath of the 2008 Global Economic Crisis.

    While megadeals are currently getting the press, SMEs should be taking a serious look at strategic M&A as achieving organic growth is very difficult in slow growth markets (as you need to take business away from a competitor).  Now is a good time for Canadian firms and business owners to consider growth strategies in Asia via the various mergers and acquisitions options.

    On November 5, join Richard Smith as he leads a webinar focused on the actual strategies and basics of M&A deals. This webinar will be invaluable for those interested in growing their business through M&A.
