How Trump Could Affect M&A Activity

Frank W. Dworak in (December 7, 2016) Despite speculation to the contrary, there seems to be no lack of confidence in mergers and acquisitions since the election, and lower tax rates under Trump could fuel this activity, Allen Matkins’ Frank Dworak tells We spoke with him about his new role, his take on corporate mergers and acquisitions and the impact a Donald Trump presidency could have on this activity. “Some had speculated that a Trump administration might depress M&A activity due to the uncertainty surrounding his presidency, but so far there doesn’t seem to be a lack of confidence. At the very least, lower tax rates under Trump may drive M&A activity by freeing up capital and reducing the cost of taxable transactions,” says Dworak.
