Canada M&A deals drop 15 pct in Q3 as sellers wait


What is happening to businesses in Canada? It seems that the sellers are waiting for uncertainty to pass. When BNN asked Ed Giacomelli, Partner at Crosbie & Company, for his views on where we were, he said that the Q3 deal volume down 15 pct from Q2, 25 pct on year. BNN asked Mr. Giacomelli for his opinion on these lower rates of M&A, he said he believed it was due to the uncertainty but that by next year, sellers will be more confident again.
In addition:

* Deal value of C$40.5 bln was up 18 pct from Q2

* Big CNOOC/Nexen deal skews data

TORONTO, Nov 14 (Reuters) - The volume of merger and
acquisition activity in Canada slowed 15 percent in the third
quarter from the second as market uncertainty held back
prospective deals, though a blockbuster bid by China's CNOOC Ltd
for oil producer Nexen Inc helped boost the overall value of
transactions, a report showed on Wednesday.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
