The article presents the views of Mike McFadden, co-chief executive of Lazard Middle Market, on the performance of the mergers & acquisition (M&A) market, as of May 2010. He mentions the third consecutive quarter-over-quarter upswing in M&A, which in the first three months of 2010 totaled 14 billion dollars spread out over 305 transactions. He states that much of the capital used in M&A came from strategic buyers who were not able to conduct M& A activities in the latter half of the first decade of the 21st century.
