GLOBAL M&A UPDATE - Q4 2020
M&A deal flows back at 2019 levels in Q4, and continuing to grow
M&A activity in the Knowledge Economy has not only returned, but continues to grow following the unique challenges of 2020. Businesses in our sector remain not only resilient, but adaptable and innovative in the face of rapid change.
