North American Mergers & Acquisitions: Crossborder Versus Domestic Deals

With total merger and acquisition activity slowing down in North America, we wanted to analyze the effect on domestic and crossborder mergers and acquisitions.  According to Figure 1 below, crossborder deals have consistently represented only 24.6% to 26.0% of M&A deal volume in North America over the last 5 years.  However, in Figure 2, we can see that while all deal volume is falling from 2015 to 2016, crossborder deal volume is declining at a slower rate than domestic deals.  With the world becoming more interconnected through trade and globalization, one implication is that crossborder deals are likely to increase in 2016 and into the future.
