Deal of the Week: Power PlaysBy and
Ed Hammond is joined by Matt Monks to discuss the latest merger trends in America's power and utility industry after Dominion Energy agreed a $14.6 billion takeover of South Carolina electricity supplier Scana Corp. The two also look at why so many power companies have been sold in the latest merger boom, and how local politics can dictate the terms of even the largest deals in the sector. Finally, Ed and Matt look ahead at what power and utility tie-ups could be on the horizon and why 2018 could be the year M&A bankers finally get to put together a mega-merger in the sector.
