Mergers and acquisitions activity at global level could begin during 2014. Confidence in the economic environment, the availability of cash and credit, the restoration of confidence in local economies – all of these factors signals new opportunities on mergers and acquisitions market. However, caution still dominate this area and this is understandable, given the occurring of unprecedented economic crisis. In this context, the market remains very sensitive to geopolitical issues – any shock could extend short-term interruptions of the flow of transactions. However, while organic growth measures only provide diminishing returns, mergers and acquisitions activity may be the only practical way of increasing for companies.
