In our Q3 2023 Corporate Advisory Newsletter, Finbarr Griffin, Head of Corporate Advisory, provides a market update and a recap on IPO and M&A activity in the second quarter. With some sources of inflation beginning to fade (e.g. falling energy prices, resolution of supply chain issues etc) and signs of a slowing economy, policy makers are faced with a tricky balancing act of continuing to pursue a rate tightening policy on the back of optimistic growth outlooks, while running the risk of tipping the eurozone and the UK into recession if growth begins to falter. And with every rate rise taking time to feed through into the economy, this task looks ever more daunting as the risk of overcorrecting becomes a threat to these economies.
Make sure to take a look at our ‘Upcoming Events’ section, where you can find all the details and mark your calendar for upcoming Goodbody events.
Finally, we wrap up this edition of the newsletter with an interview with Jason Molins, Head of Food and Beverage Equity Research. Jason talks to us about his team, how companies are performing against the current economic backdrop, he discusses how ESG is impacting the sector and he provides an outlook for the rest of the year.
