$25 billion in deals in a single day?

November 10, 2006

That’s what financial research firm Dealogic toted up from a particularly torrid “Merger Monday” on November 6, when six M&A transactions, each worth over $1 billion, were announced. The day of big takeovers in the healthcare, mining and dining sectors was just the latest sign that this year’s merger boom isn’t slowing. 
That’s music to the ears of top executives who arrange the deals, many of which will be attending Reuters Corporate Finance summit starting on Monday, where panels of journalists in New York and London will quiz CEOs, department heads and lawyers on where the M&A boom will take the market — and the banks’ bottom lines — next.
Guests at the four-day summit will include Greenhill CEO Bob Greenhill, Blackstone President Tony James, and Citigroup head of European investment banking Tom King. It kicks off on Nov. 13. Stay tuned.
