This article reports that the optimistic view for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in 2005 is that deal levels in the U.S. are going to be moderately better. But IntraLinks Inc., a New York company that provides online M&A due diligence, is experiencing something else entirely. It is boldly forecasting a 180% increase in its own business for the first half of 2005 over this year's first half. IntraLinks is so bullish, explained Matt Porzio, IntraLinks' vp of M&A, because of the themes playing out in the M&A market these days.
