AMAAWe’re excited to announce that our next webinar will take place on Tuesday, January 30th at 16:00 GMT and will focus exclusively on what’s trending in the world of mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Here are some of the questions that will be answered during our hour-long session dedicated to M&A:

  • Are firms currently looking to buy others or are they holding onto their money?
  • Which will be the most active sectors in terms of M&As in 2018? Why?
  • What are the most important tax-related issues companies must take into account when involved in M&As?
  • Will dropping corporate tax rates throughout the world affect the M&A sector? How so?
  • When it comes to M&As, are consulting firms also advising on human resources due diligence or do they still consider the human side of M&As as "collateral damage" to be included in forecasted profits and losses?
  • And plenty more!
