Dealmaking is booming, with a record $1.4 trillion of deals announced so far in 2021 as big acquirers move past the pandemic slowdown and blank-check companies snap up targets.
At the same time, companies have raised more than $140 billion in IPOs in the biggest going-public drive since 2010, with SPACs not far behind. New unicorns are being minted almost every day as startup funding in the U.S. hits a record high, and CEO confidence – a crucial catalyst for transactions – is soaring.
Against the backdrop of one of the most exciting years in deals history, we bring you Bloomberg Deals, a virtual event featuring top dealmakers, CEOs, investors, and insiders sharing their insights on the landscape and debating whether this historic boom is likely to continue.
Topics will include:
How To Do a Megadeal
Choose Your Own Going-Public Adventure: IPO, Direct Listing, or SPAC?
Activist investing state of play and outlook
