2011: An M&A Rebound?

I am teaching M&A again this semester.  In my first class yesterday, I tried to give my students a sense of how M&A deal activity has been faring over the past several years and where things are expected to go.  It appears that the mood about M&A in 2011 is more buoyant than it was in the lull of the summer of 2010.  After reading reports like this one from E&Y, I am feeling cautiously optimistic.  I am not sure if all of this optimism will last, but for now, the new year is starting off pretty well.  This week’s merger Monday included a host of M&A deal activity, with $21 billion in announced deals.

So far, so good…but it’s only January.
