Global sentiment on the M&A market has increased slightly since last quarter, according to the Intralinks Global M&A Sentiment Survey.
Global dealmakers are likely to be extremely despondent as European political boundaries shrink for the first time. What now for UK and European M&A?
Dealmakers are willing to start deals in the wider EMEA region, but seem reticent about doing deals in the UK, based on Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor data.
The Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor forecasts nominally flat growth in the number of M&A deals to be announced through the first nine months of 2016 YoY.
Intralinks conducted its quarterly Global M&A Sentiment Survey in April 2016, receiving 1,500 responses from M&A dealmakers about M&A market conditions.
