Market Observations – Q3 2017

Market Observations – Q3 2017

The disclosed dollar value for announced merger and acquisition activity involving U.S. targets has topped $900 billion this year, on its way to the fifth consecutive year of over $1 trillion in activity.

Year-to-date through October 25, just 836 transactions are classified as leveraged buyouts by S&P Global Market Intelligence, accounting for less than $50 billion in disclosed deal value. Extrapolating those results for the remainder of the year suggests that 2017 could end with less than $62 billion in disclosed LBO value from about 1,025 deals. Should that come to pass, it would represent the slowest year for U.S. LBOs since 2009, when 986 deals occurred with a total disclosed value of less than $44.6 billion.
