Q1 2020 SS&C Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor: Struggles Predicted for Latin America M&A

LATAM is an outlier in global M&A growth in the first quarter of 2020.

2 December 2019


Globally, new mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deal announcements are predicted to make a robust entry into Q1 2020. Latin America (LATAM), however, is expected to show a YOY decrease by 4 percent, with a range of +2 to -9 percent. 

That’s the forecast from the just released SS&C Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor for Q1 2020.

Our predictive analysis models from Intralinks’ and Refinitiv1 signal Peru, Colombia and Brazil as the strongest regions for the next six months, while Argentina and Mexico show flat to declining M&A growth.

Nonetheless, the Healthcare, Energy & Power and Industrials identify as the sector leaders. Real Estate remains – as in H2 2019 – the weakest performing industry here.
