Merger & Acquisition Outcome Prediction (GY - ONLY)

Merger & Acquisitions Outcome Prediction. Picture of one black and one white bull intertwined.

This project is intended to predict the success of an M&A action by Machine Learning. The research team will analyze the M&A process, collect appropriate data, and build machine learning models to predict the success of the action. The goal of this project is to build a successful pipeline that can be utilized by companies who are looking for M&A opportunities by publicly released data to evaluate their outcome.
