A quarterly view of deal activity

Q3 highlights

Through the first three quarters of 2017, the Canadian deals market experienced a significant rise in activity with transaction volume up 23% compared to the same period in 2016. With plenty of activity from private equity and pension funds, high valuations and an increased appetite for US-bound deals across the market, it’s a good time for sellers.

Highlights include:

  • Deal volume increased 23% compared to 2016
  • Inbound deals from the US rose 9%
  • Outbound deals to the US surged by 27%
  • Private equity and pension fund deals increased in volume by almost 40%, largely driven by deals in the $50m - $1bn range
