Sectors With The Most M&A Deal Leaks In 202111 November 2022
Each year, SS&C Intralinks partners with the M&A Research Centre (MARC), Bayes Business School at City, University of London, to evaluate the state of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deal leaks.
Leaking information about a transaction prior to announcement is illegal. While it can occur unintentionally, more often leaks are done on the sell-side to attract competing bids that will drive up the selling price or on the buy-side by a bidder who might have found risk during due diligence and does want to not have the deal go ahead.
In this episode, we’re joined by Dr. Valeriya Vitkova, a senior research fellow at MARC and one of the co-authors of the just published 2021 M&A deal leaks study.
In this episode, Dr. Vitkova shares key findings from the research:
- Volume of M&A deal leaks during 2021’s record-breaking year for M&A
- Deal value of leaked deals in 2021 vs. 2020
- Which regions and countries are “leakier” than others
- Three surprising sectors with the most leaked deals
