Get a full detailed review of global M&A dealflow from the past month, as Merrill Corporation proudly presents the April edition of the M&A Monthly Insider prepared by the intelligence team at Mergermarket.
Perhaps inevitably, Global M&A at the beginning of this year has found itself cooling down after 2015’s record year of dealmaking, in what could turn out to be a sort of “rebalancing” in 2016. With total deal values reaching US$605.5bn, it was the lowest first-quarter value in two years, and down 22.9% from Q1 2015. Particularly notable has been the drop from the last three quarters, all of which saw activity worth more than US$1tn.
This report provides an in-depth review of M&A activity from March 2016, offering key insights into dealmaking trends for the year ahead.
