Australia's M&A market is in a slump, although there may be a glimmer of hope.

Australia’s M&A market is in a terrible ditch and no one knows quite when it will climb out. Two reports explain how the mining industry is well off last year’s levels, but there might be a glimmer of hope in the gold sector. Right on cue, global gold giant AngloGold Ashanti is mulling a possible listing of its Australian assets. Meanwhile, Australia’s steelmakers are in the spotlight, ACCC boss Rod Sims isn’t taking the Virgin Australia deals lightly and nib Holdings has found a way into New Zealand (did they fly Virgin business?)
