Global Reference Guide 2011: Mergers & Acquisitions

    November 2011

    Ziad El-Khoury, managing partner of El-Khoury & Partners in association with Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, examines the main drivers behind M&A activity in “Middle East & Africa: Resilience Sets the Stage for M&A Activity in Lebanon,” published in the Financier Worldwide e-book Global Reference Guide 2011: Mergers & Acquisitions.

    Ziad discusses how Lebanon’s economic stability and solid banking sector have encouraged many bank consolidations, as well as significant M&A activity in the developing sectors of insurance and communication technologies. According to Ziad, Lebanon is likely to experience larger and more notable M&A transactions as the country continues to promote a fertile and friendly environment for investment.
