CBV Institute announced today the results of its 2024 M&A Outlook Survey.

On the heels of tepid M&A activity in 2023 as dealmakers wrestled with interest rate hikes, inflation, geopolitical pressures and economic uncertainty, the Institute’s 2024 M&A Outlook Survey shows signs of increased activity. The survey, which was fielded among CBV Institute members who were involved in M&As in 2023, finds that nearly six in 10 (58 per cent) of respondents expect M&A transaction activity to increase in Canada over the next 12 to 24 months, as compared to 2023. When asked where increased M&A activity is expected in 2024, industrial products and services (42 per cent), health care (40 per cent) and technology (39 per cent) are the top three sectors identified by CBVs.
