As we climb out of the recession, the great liquidity freeze has thawed out. The early months of 2011 were marked by blockbuster PE-backed IPOs, including HCA, Kinder Morgan and Nielsen. There has also been robust M&A activity, including Sanofi's acquisition of Genzyme and AT&T's just-announced purchase of T-Mobile. Are additional megadeals in the cards? Beyond the big names, are mid-market firms finding it easier to raise capital? With 2008 receding into the rear-view mirror, have firms adopted a new approach to managing capital structure and debt loads? What kind of lasting imprint will the financial crisis leave on the world of corporate finance? How has the investment banking industry changed?
