AI Magazine Issue 1 2017

Acquisition International - January 2017 3 Editor’s Comment Welcome to the January 2017 edition of AI magazine, which features a fascinating variety of features including corporate governance, coaching, legal issues and M&A to name a few. Heading up this edition is Kanzlei Kleiner GmbH, a firm founded 60 years ago, and has now grown in size to be widely respected for its specialist tax expertise, both nationally and internationally. In M&A news, at first glance 2016 may appear to have been fairly disappointing in terms of the volume and value of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals signed off over the 12 months. However, given that 2015 was a record-breaking year, it was always going to be difficult for deal making to keep up such a blistering pace writes Zephyr, the M&A database published by Bureau van Dijk. In other news, 2017 is looking like a year of opportunity on many levels writes managing director of Morphose Ltd, Nick Atherton. Brexit is going to be triggered and the serious business of extricating the country from the EU will begin. The US will have a new President and way of doing business – but how will that impact on the UK and Europe? It will certainly make for interesting times. I hope you enjoy reading this edition.
