Historical M&A Transactions

In 2017, US M&A deal volume is expected to reach its highest level since its last cyclical peak in 2007. However, total closed M&A deals, measured in $ value, are projected to drop year over year, which signals that the market is experiencing fewer “mega-deals” in 2017. Factset Flashwire confirmed this in its July publication. For $1Bn+ transactions, the number of closed deals over the last 12 months increased 17.5% year over year ending June 30th, but the aggregate transaction value for $1Bn+ M&A market declined 7.7%. The graph below displays the large rise in closed deal volume over the last 30 years.
