Q3 2019 Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor: North America M&A Expected to Bounce Back
NA region set to underpin tepid global M&A growth over next six months
20 May 2019
Following a disappointing start to 2019, with the number of NA-region M&A deals announced in Q1 2019 falling by 29 percent year-over-year (YOY), NA is predicted to stage a modest recovery in mergers & acquisitions (M&A) activity over the next six months. That’s just part of the story revealed in the Q3 2019 issue of the Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor.
Based on growth in levels of early-stage due diligence M&A activity in NA virtual data rooms over the past six months, the Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor forecasts that the number of announced M&A deals in NA is expected to increase by around 3 percent YOY over the next six months, within a range of 14 percent to 6 percent.
The sectors that are predicted to lead growth in NA M&A announcements over the next six months include Financials, Consumer & Retail and Energy & Power.
