Deal Drivers Americas - 2018 Half-Year Edition


Merrill Corporation is excited to share the half-year edition of Deal Drivers Americas, a report published in association with Mergermarket.

This report provides an in-depth review of mergers and acquisitions in the Americas region, offering insights on notable deals, sector performance, and trends that have impacted dealmaking in 2018.

Highlights from this report include:

  • Energy Leads the Pack: Energy, Mining, Oil & Gas recorded the highest deal value by sector for 1H18, followed by Business Services and Technology, Media & Telecom.
  • Transatlantic Deals Decline: The number of deals between European and American entities declined from 616 in 1H17 to 502 in 1H18.
  • Private Equity: Increase in activity compared to the same period a year ago; looking ahead at PE activity during the second half of the year, firms have both the capital and the impetus to make deals happen.
  • Latin America Overview: Despite recent political uncertainty, Latin American M&A activity was unshaken, reaching a total deal value of US$46.3bn in the first half, 61% higher than the same period last year.
