'Perfect Storm' for Mergers and Acquisitions Activity in 2021

Dealmaking surged in 2021 as mergers and acquisitions activity topped $5 trillion. Paul Aversano, managing director and global practice Leader of Alvarez & Marsal's Global Transaction Advisory Group, joined Cheddar to look at how market factors came together to drive the flurry of transactions. "I like to say it's almost a perfect storm for M&A activity," he said. Aversano pointed to a backlog of activity following the slowdown in 2020, "dry powder" unallocated capital in private equity firms, and federal stimulus as some of the reasons behind the burst of changes.
