SS&C Intralinks Sees Active Q3 2022 for M&A Despite Slowing Volumes
WINDSOR, CT, July 25, 2022 (PR NEWSWIRE) – SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced Q3 2022 predictions from the SS&C Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor, a quarterly publication of future mergers and acquisitions (M&A) announcements.
"Relatively speaking, we’ve seen less volatility in M&A activity globally than in other corners of the market, such as equities,” said Bob Petrocchi, Co-Head, SS&C Intralinks. “As anticipated, M&A volume trended downward, and we expect a neutral to negative outlook for Q3. However, if we keep the bigger picture in mind, Q3 2022 volume is forecasted to be higher than Q3 2020 and Q3 2019 by over 20%. So, from our view, the markets are still active.”
Regional market forecasts for Q3 2022 M&A activity:
- Asia Pacific shows moderate negative movement in Q3 2022, with China’s outsized macroeconomic impact moving the territory towards the lower end of a growth range of -5 to +5% quarter on quarter and Q3 2021.
- Europe, the Middle East and Africa are forecast to remain flat against Q2 2022 and Q3 2021 with a range of -5 to +5% growth.
- Latin America saw strong numbers through 2021 and is forecast to underperform Q3 2021 by double digits.
- North America’s heated 2021 volume has relieved some pressure in Q1. As a result, we forecast the region in the underperform range of less than -5% versus Q2 2022 and Q3 2021.
The SS&C Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor forecasts the number of future M&A announcements by tracking early-stage M&A activity from the previous four quarters, defined as new sell-side M&A transactions that are in preparation or have begun their due diligence stage. On average, early-stage deals are six months away from public announcement.
