Infographic – Mergers & Acquisitions – April 2017

This MarketPoint infographic explores the high-stakes world of mergers & acquisitions (M&As). Did you know 2015 was a record year for M&As?

So if you’re thinking about playing this risky game, you’d better download our infographic and keep it handy. All sources cited.
