Australia M&A Forum

See you in 2020


After a strong 2018, with deal value reaching A$123.1billion (US$88.5 billion) through some significant transactions, together with an increase in mid-market M&A, deal-making in Australia continues to be robust. Despite regulatory headwinds and macroeconomic uncertainties, M&A within Australia looks to remain stable, driven largely by interest from private equity and superannuation funds, deal flow from regulatory fallout, and overseas interest, as well as continued activity in the EMU, TMT, and consumer sectors.

Mergermarket’s inaugural Australia M&A Forum will bring together over 200 leading corporates, investors, private equity fund managers, and senior advisors from Australia and Asia for a one-day intensive dive into the main topics that will shape the M&A landscape in the coming 12 months. The event will feature fireside chats, data presentations, and case studies to facilitate greater understanding of the latest trends and opportunities in Australian and cross-border M&A.
