This IFR M&A Webcast, in association with Merrill DataSite, brought together a leading panel of senior M&A professionals to analyse the outlook for accessing takeover financing in the coming year.
The webinar is fully interactive: not only will you hear the opinions and ideas of some of the M&A industry’s leading lights, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion by submitting questions and comments online.
Topics discussed were:
- Evaluating the outlook for M&A in 2013 and the availability of finance to fund it
- Will banks step up to the plate in an era of deleveraging?
- Optimising the funding mix. Is bridge-to-bond the only way to go?
- Corporate bond investors proved they were wiling to provide financing in huge size in 2012. Will they support mega-capital raisings in M&A situations?

- What is the outlook for high-yield bond markets and leveraged lending?
- Will CLOs and hedge funds emerge as a viable source of takeover financing?
