Summary notes of significant M&A deals for entire 2011. It contains approximately 500 entries. The list is not exhaustive, but I’ve attempted to capture significant deals, that are representative of the overall M&A activity.
The notes have been added incrementally as I came across the news, as a result tenses may be inconsistent (past/present – has/had/will/said/etc.). They will remain as is (based on when I read about them) and will not be changed.
