When it comes to Mergers and Acquisitions the bull is back! Cash Flush companies make huge buys as the market hits bottom according to Microsoft and Amgen.

The week started with a bang as Cash Rich Pharma and Tech firms rush to buy publicly traded companies at 'rock bottom' prices.

In fact, more than $70 Billion worth of Mergers and Acquisitions were announced on Monday alone, including:

  • Amgen's takeover of Horizon Therapeutics for $26.4 Billion...

  • And Microsoft scooped-up 4% of the London Stock Exchange via strategic partnership that includes Ai analytics, modeling solutions, and new cloud infrastructure for the exchange.

The big question financial analysts are asking is why now?


And the answer lies in today's inflation showing prices rose less than expected last month, which has many historical cash-hoarding companies concluding that inflation may have peaked.

With the cost of finance expected to remain at current high interest-rates for the foreseeable future, M&A firms are racing to buy targets before prices go up.

Now Could Be The Best Time In History For Canadian SME's To Secure Acquisition Financing 

With Q4 results already in, Canadian chartered banks are increasing access to financing for Canadian SME’s, currently their only profitable revenue source.


And with economic recovery expected across the board, first-movers are now positioning themselves to take advantage of the anticipated 2023 rebound.
