ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the trend in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in 2013, particularly the possible return of large public M&A deals. The author mentions that dealmakers are wondering wheter pre-recession M&A transactions are returning, following the purchase of H.J. Heinz Co. by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and 3G Capital. He adds that such deals are possible due to banks being more open to finance large acquisitions.
