The first half of 2021 broke global records for mergers and acquisitions. In the U.S., deal value is up more than 200% over last year. The pandemic effect, high multiples, low interest rates, the emergence of SPACs and expected regulatory changes are just a few of the reasons for this remarkable surge in M&A activity.
