Tuesday, 30 November 2021 | M&A environment and emerging tax trends (4 pm CET)

The global M&A market has been extremely active with a reported value of over US$6.7t in the period from July 2020 to September 2021. Over US$4t of that was reported from January to September 2021, highlighting how busy 2021 has been. There also continues to be strong momentum in the deal market as a result of record levels of dry powder allocated to buyouts held by private equity and venture capital firms globally.

At the same time, there is cause for caution as a result of various global disruptions including labor challenges, supply chain disruption, geopolitical developments, changing consumer behavior, multiple tax reforms, ongoing COVID-19 concerns, as well as continuing developments in transparency and sustainability agendas.

Based on this dynamic market environment, it is key that businesses consider their M&A strategy. Our EY panelists are M&A professionals, including representatives from both the US and APAC tax desks, based in Europe.

Join them to hear their insights on:

  • The global macroeconomic and deal environment, and key future trends

  • Tax reform and policy agenda around substance, transparency and sustainability

  • Key M&A tax trends such as increased diligence scope, tax risk around supply chain arrangements and diligence around sustainable operating models

  • Other M&A tax trends such as special purpose acquisition vehicle (SPAC), deal challenges in Europe / APAC and debt restructuring considerations

Date: Tuesday, 30 November 2021

Time: 16:00–17:00 CET Paris; 10:00–11:00 EST New York; 7:00–8:00 PST Los Angeles
