Merger and acquisition activity is starting 2014 at a steady pace and most seem to believe it is going to continue.

There’s already been 37 deals with price tags over $1 billion, setting the stage for acquisitions to possibly top the $1-trillion mark for the second straight year in 2014.
While those megamergers get all the headlines, there are countless other deals happening as well as smaller firms join forces. On Wednesday, Powertech Uranium Corp. (TSX:PWE) entered into a share purchase agreement with privately held Azarga Resources Limited in which Powertech is acquiring all of the issued and outstanding shares of Azarga in trade for common shares of PWE.
