ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the development of mergers and acquisition (M&A) globally. The emergence of decidedly eclectic consortia has been one of the more interesting developments in M&A in recent years, and one rich with possibilities for the future. Strange bedfellows from around the globe are pooling resources with U.S. buyout firms to bid for companies that would otherwise be out of their individual reach, such as Maytag Corp. and Italy's Wind Telecomunicazioni SpA. The steady increase in monthly M&A volume has given hankers reason to believe that the market has rebounded in a profound way and will continue to be strong in the second half of the year INSET: The Rankings Battle.
