As North America recovers from the effects of the 2008 recession, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions are beginning to grow in popularity. Financing is becoming more readily available as investors seek opportunities in both strategic and financial M&A deals.

The purpose of this report is to review and analyse the current M&A market and determine where the greatest opportunity lies for M&A practitioners in 2011 and 2012.
