As always, a fiery piece by Sarah Lacey, looking at how Europe will fare if the markets in the US continue to fall in 2016. 

It is true that in Europe we did not have the same frothy pricing at the top end, or the same level of capital chasing too few good deals. It's also true that there is more money in Europe than there has ever been, and we are not reliant on funding from the US. However Europe tends to take its lead from the US, and so we are not insulated from a pull back in the market. 

While we expect that companies seeking to raise capital this year may have to work harder or accept lower pricing, we see continued strong interest in European companies from the corporate buyers in the USA. They are willing to pay good prices for the right acquisitions, and we think 2016 is likely still to be a good year for sellers.
