M&A and Private Equity Outlook 2020

Presented by Expert Webcast

Private equity firms had amassed almost $1.5 trillion in “dry powder” by the end of 2019, the highest year-end total on record, according to data compiled by Preqin. And 2020 M&A activity is likely to surpass the 2019 volume of approximately $450 billion worth of private equity deals.

James D. Rosener, a partner in the Commercial Department of Pepper Hamilton and head of the firm's International Practice Group, will join this panel discussion on the economic and geopolitical outlook, macro and microeconomic market drivers, deal expectations, and transaction structures of private equity deals. The panelists also will answer questions from attendees and address current transactional trends, capital availability, and issues and challenges in getting deals to closing.
