Companies plan to accelerate investment plans during the year, and want to ensure further growth

13.1.2022 (Webnoviny.sk) – According to its CEOs, most companies want to accelerate plans for investments, mergers and acquisitions despite the ongoing pandemic. The reason is the effort to ensure further growth. According to the EY CEO 2022 forecast survey, investment plans can frustrate companies from outside business risks. Most of the CEOs surveyed fear rising input prices and have identified trade tensions, the impact of climate change and increased competition as the most serious risks.

“CEOs are ready for more investment. However, a fragile global environment and rising business costs across the board, from rising inflation to skyrocketing energy costs, are keeping them on the alert. After a record series of mergers and acquisitions, companies will focus on consolidating assets acquired over the past 12 months, but the acquisition plans should ensure a significant volume of business in 2022 as well.” .
According to the survey, in the next 12 months, CEOs of selected companies will prioritize companies that improve their operational capabilities (26%) as well as their environmental, social and management status and sustainability (20%). The most popular destinations for acquisitions this year are the USA, UK, China, India and Germany. Investments will be directed primarily to the IT, healthcare and innovative technology sectors.
