Continuing our series of monthly updates on the M&A market, EuroDev M&A has prepared a report on the M&A activity in the third quarter of 2018. It gives insights into the industry by providing information on the M&A development, both in North America as well as in Europe. It is our pleasure to share this resource with you.
Some key findings of this report are:
- The volume and value of global M&A declined in the third quarter of 2018. Global dealmaking declined 18% by volume and 25% by value, compared to the previous quarter.
- Global PE activity follows the same pattern as M&A, declining Quarter-on-Quarter and Year-on-Year.
- Despite North American M&A value during Q3 representing 34% of total global value, dealmaking in the region declined 29% by value and 16% by volume, compared to the previous quarter.
- M&A activity in Europe fell in tandem with the US market. However, 2018 still reflects a very strong period for Europe.
