US health services deals insights: Year-end 2016 update

2016 was an active year for US Health Services deals, but did not match the prior year 

Overall deal volume in 2016 was only slightly lower than in 2015, declining by 1.4% to 939. However, overall deal value was significantly lower, decreasing by 59.6% to $71.7 billion. The decline in total value can be partially attributed to 2015’s exceptional Q3 2015, in which Managed Care megadeals were announced.

Fewer Megadeals were announced in 2016 vs 2015

In 2016, there were 14 deals exceeding $1 billion, representing a decrease of 4 deals from 2015, with 71.1% lower deal value. Megadeals represented only 59.3% of total deal value for the year, compared with 82.9% in 2015.
