In Q1 2021, global Mergers and Acquisitions in 2020 increased 93%, completed and pending. Unsurprisingly half of them happen in the US or were US-based.
The special purpose acquisition company structure (SPACs) is the clear winner of last year’s M&A boom, followed by very low borrowing costs.
Since the SEC is looking closer into SPAC’s, several have already been delayed. Still a clear market trend.
