This article talks about mergers and acquisitions (M&A). A study found that of 138 senior executives surveyed, 88% are planning on an acquisition in 2007 to 2008. The executives said telecommunication, banking and energy are the top three industries for future M&A activity. Howard Horowitz, director of research for Walter Island Capital's Arbitrage Fund, said private equity, along with globalization and an increase in shareholder activism, have set the stage for huge amounts of M&A activity.
