M&A trends podcast series – Briefings on hot topics in mergers and acquisitions
Is there any part of the business world that moves faster than mergers and acquisitions (M&A)? It's hard to imagine—and that's what makes it so exciting. The M&A Views podcast series is a chance to hear Deloitte's experienced M&A leaders answer questions on the latest M&A trends, from culture to technology and beyond.
We'd recommend listening to the discussion between Ray Ballotta and Andrew Slaughter – From upstream to downstream: Trends in oil and gas M&A (please scroll down the page to locate this specific discussion)
The oil and gas industry saw a steady decline in deal activity over the course of 2017. Will this trend continue in the year ahead? In this episode, Andrew Slaughter, executive director of the Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions, and Ray Ballotta, Oil & Gas M&A industry leader, take a look at how oil prices and other factors could impact the level of deal activity in the industry.
