ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report by Ernst & Young released on April 2011 in relation to mergers and acquisitions (M&S) activities in the next six months of the year. According to the report, one-third of businesses around the world are seeking for acquisitions in the next half of the year but in the longer term, M&A activities decline as companies look into internal growth. The report also reveals that factors like high oil prices, political unrest in the Middle East, and the tsunami in japan can also affect M&A trends.
