PricewaterhouseCoopers Sees Strong Growth in U.S. Entertainment and Media M&A Activity
NEW YORK, March 9, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Merger and acquisition activity in the U.S. entertainment and media (E&M) market is on a strong growth trajectory, and this year is projected to reach levels not seen since 2001, according to 2006 M&A Insights -- U.S. Entertainment and Media Industry, a new report from PricewaterhouseCoopers' E&M Transaction Services Practice. Increasing levels of E&M industry consolidation -- and deconsolidation -- activity are being driven by a number of trends, led by the convergence of media, communications and technology; shifting consumer media consumption habits; and the increasing involvement and influence of private equity firms in deal making activity. Also fueling this activity is a move by some global E&M conglomerates to separate or divest non-core assets in an effort to increase shareholder value, according to the PwC report.
