Audio – Deal volumes on track to beat 2000

November 13, 2006



Merrill Lynch’s investment banking president said that M&A activity may be on track to beat the record volume of deals in 2000.
“The year-to-date volume looks like it’s on track to surpass the peak of 2000,” said Gregory Fleming at the Reuters Investment Banking Summit in New York. 

Fleming’s comments come after the pace of growth in the third quarter slowed, leaving many experts to question whether 2006 would indeed be a record year
