Excerpt from Introduction:

2013 was a year of mixed activity levels in the Canadian capital markets. It was a very good year for the major North American equity trading markets and a record year for Canadian corporate debt issuers. There were also a number of significant Canadian IPOs. On the other hand, there was an overall reduction in the level of Canadian M&A activity and equity offerings. At Osler, we had the good fortune to advise on the two largest M&A transactions of 2013, the two largest equity financings of the year, and several of the most noteworthy IPOs. We also assisted many of our clients with key strategic and, in some cases, transformative transactions. What follows is a review of overall market activity in 2013 and some observations and predictions gleaned from the deals on which we were engaged in the year.
