BDO Horizons 2018 - Issue 2

07 May 2018

Each quarter BDO’s Mergers & Acquisitions team analyses global deal activity across a number of regions and selected sectors around the world; we offer you a satellite view of how the M&A market is evolving - and where it appears to be heading. 

Issue 2 2018, our spring edition,  includes:

  • Global view – The outlook is positive as pressure from shareholders and the search for innovation continue to drive corporates towards M&A.
  • Special feature – Cybersecurity risks on the rise for Private Equity dealmakers. 
  • North America – M&A is plagued by relaxed strategic buyers.
  • Technology & Media - Digitalisation, intra-sector convergence and China's appetite for technology are all contributing to elevated M&A activity in the sector - and increased price levels.
  • Natural resources - Higher commodity prices signal continued M&A activity in North America.
  • Building Products & Services - A hotbed for M&A activity across the Globe.
