Year of the European M&A ?

The latest issue of Europe Business is a special on takeovers. I cannot go into the list of targets mentioned, but there are some unlikely names. The feature goes onto predict that this year will be "the year of takeovers".

One interesting aspect mentioned in that piece was the upcoming change in Eurozone accounting rules that take effect early next year. That change will pressure a lot of buyers to advance their buyouts into this year.
