Observers who closely monitor the mergers and acquisitions marketplace say that after an economically difficult couple of years, cross-border M&A deals are poised to make a comeback. That’s because credit markets are gradually strengthening, and financing is becoming more readily available. In addition, corporations that have been conserving cash for the past couple of years are now hungry for and seeking out opportunity.

You will be if you understand how important it is for you and other participants in a deal to both literally and figuratively “speak the same language.”
