Despite a slower start to 2016, we expect CEOs and business leaders will continue to look at M&A and other partnerships as a means to support growth, improve profitability and secure long-term competitiveness. This year’s deals may not be as large or generate the same level of attention as 2014 and 2015, but we expect deals will continue to get done at a reasonable pace.

Retail and consumer deal volume continued its positive trajectory, reaching its highest level in the past four quarters.
While deal values remained relative consistent (with the exception of Q3 of 2015), deal volume in the Aerospace & Defense sector declined by 20% (as compared to the previous quarter) to one its lowest levels in recent history.
Auto M&A deal value for the first half of 2016 was down 37%, off the pace experienced in 2015. However, with 257 deals, volume was only down 7%.
Despite global economic uncertainties, 2016 is keeping pace with 2015’s record-breaking year for tech M&A. Following a modest start to the year, dealmakers came alive late in Q2’16 with a handful of multi-billion dollar transactions.

It provides an overview of the most recent M&A results and our expectations for future deal activity.
