Amid the disappointing data about dealmaking in 2012, cross-border M&A provides a ray of hope. The amount of money invested in M&A transactions in emerging markets grew five percent to $162.4 billion, according to a recent report by international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (although deal volume was down 12 percent).

We’ll be exploring emerging marketing and other opportunities in cross-border M&A on Feb. 27, when Mergers & Acquisitions and Bank of America Merrill Lynch will host a symposium on “International Transformation: Unlocking Value and Executing Abroad.” The event will be held at the Standard Club in Chicago.
