"Looking ahead, we expect a 6 percent rise in M&A deal announcements by the end of Q1 2020," said Todd Partridge, Head of Global Marketing, SS&C Intralinks. "That's a marked turnaround from the 7 percent year-over-year decline in worldwide deal announcements in H1 2019. The Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT), Materials, and Energy & Power sectors are expected to lead this growth."

Regional breakdown of M&A activity predicted for the six months ending Q1 2020:

  • In Asia-Pacific, the number of announced M&A deals is predicted to increase by around 7 percent year-over-year (YOY) over the next six months, within a range of 2 to 12 percent, led by the Real Estate, Financials and Industrial sectors. India, Japan, China and Hong Kong are expected to make the strongest contributions to growth.
  • In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the number of announced M&A deals is predicted to increase by 5 percent YOY over the next six months, within a range of 2 to 7 percent. The strongest growth contributions are expected in the Materials, TMT, and Energy & Power sectors. Italy, Spain, the U.K. and Germany are all expected to see increases in M&A announcements.
  • In Latin America, the number of announced M&A deals is predicted to decrease by 4 percent YOY for this period, within a range of -9 to 2 percent. The Healthcare, Energy & Power and Industrial sectors are predicted to lead any growth in announcements. Any increases in LATAM economies are expected to come from Peru, Columbia and Brazil.
  • In North America, the number of announced M&A deals is predicted to increase by 7 percent YOY over the next six months, within a range of 0 to 15 percent, led by the TMT, Healthcare and Materials sectors.
