Global M&A Overview


Q2 2012 global M&A at US$ 494.9bn, bucks trend of five consecutive quarterly declines H1 2012 total of US$ 929.4bn, down 21.6% on H1 2011 Clifford Chance claims top spot in H1 2012 global legal advisers league table by deal value

Value of Deals (US$bn)

The H1 2012 total of US$ 929.4bn, however, was a decline of 21.6% on H1 2011 (US$ 1,185.1bn). The lower first half figure was also the third-lowest first half total since H1 2004 (US$ 826bn). Q2 2012s total matched this; the third-lowest quarterly total since Q2 2010 (US$ 428.6bn). On current form, full year 2012 is set to be the second-lowest yearly total since 2004 (US$ 1,685.4bn). Europe, plagued by the continuing uncertainty surrounding its debt crisis, managed to match all other regions in posting a quarter-on-quarter increase. Q2 2012 M&A on the continent totalled US$ 183.7bn, up 6.6% on Q1 2012 (US$ 172.4bn). This also ensured that Europe made up the largest share of global M&A of any region; it accounted for 38.3% of total deal value in the first half of 2012. The US, although posting a quarter-on-quarter increase of 27.9%, registered the worst half-year performance drop, with H1 2012 M&A coming in at US$ 258.7bn, down 40.1% on the first half of last year (US$ 431.5bn). Japanese M&A, meanwhile, looked robust. It registered increases across all comparisons; M&A was up 40% in Q2 2012 compared to Q2 2011, up 101.4% in Q2 2012 compared to the previous quarter and up 28% in H1 2012 compared to H1 2011.

The H1 2012 figure of US$ 140.1bn, though, was a 15.1% decline on H1 2011 (US$ 165bn). Clifford Chance claimed the H1 2012 global legal advisers mantle, by deal value, after climbing 16 places from its H1 2011 finish. Jones Day won the day by claiming top spot for the deal volume crown.

Volume of Deals

The freefall in global M&A was temporarily halted in Q2 2012. Registering US$ 494.9bn in deals, Q2 2012 was up 13.9% on Q1 2012 (US$ 434.6bn), reversing a seemingly terminal decline that had seen five previous quarters of consecutive falls in the global total.

Note: The Intelligence Heat Chart are based on companies for sale tracked by mergermarket in the respective regions between 16 December 2011 and 15 June 2012. Opportunities are captured according to the dominant geography and sector of the potential target company. mergermarkets Heat Chart of predicted deal flow is based on the intelligence collected in our database relating to companies rumoured to be for sale, or officially up for sale in the respective regions. It is therefore indicative of areas that are likely to be active in the months to come. The intelligence comes from a range of sources, including press reports, company statements and our own team of journalists gathering proprietary intelligence from M&A across the regions. The data does not differentiate between small and large transactions, nor between deals that could happen in the short or long-term.

Value of Deals (US$bn)

European deals in Q2 2012 totalled US$ 183.7bn, down 23.6% compared to the same period in 2011 (US$ 240.5bn) but up 6.6% from Q1 2012 (US$ 172.4bn). The second quarter of this year was the third-highest quarterly total since Q4 2009 (US$ 187.8bn), although 2012 is on course for a lower total as 2011 finished with US$ 721.9bn in deals. Energy, Mining & Utilities accounted for nearly a third of total deal value in H1 2012, with over US$ 110bn in first half M&A, no doubt in part to the Glencore-Xstrata mega-deal. Deals in the Construction sector also got a much-needed boost with total deal value in H1 2012 at US$ 18.1bn, up 218% on H1 2011 (US$ 5.7bn). Of all global M&A, European deals made up a hefty 38.3% of total deal value for the first half of 2012, driving the theory that Europe offers buyers value. Clifford Chance claimed top spot in the H1 2012 M&A legal advisers league table by deal value, while the honours went to Linklaters by deal volume.

Note: The Intelligence Heat Chart are based on companies for sale tracked by mergermarket in the respective regions between 16 December 2011 and 15 June 2012. Opportunities are captured according to the dominant geography and sector of the potential target company. mergermarkets Heat Chart of predicted deal flow is based on the intelligence collected in our database relating to companies rumoured to be for sale, or officially up for sale in the respective regions. It is therefore indicative of areas that are likely to be active in the months to come. The intelligence comes from a range of sources, including press reports, company statements and our own team of journalists gathering proprietary intelligence from M&A across the regions. The data does not differentiate between small and large transactions, nor between deals that could happen in the short or long-term.

US M&A, although dire with a Q2 2012 total of US$ 145.2bn, was still up 27.9% on Q1 2012 (US$ 113.5bn). Combined, H1 2012s total of US$ 258.7bn was down sharply by 40.1% on H1 2011 (US$ 431.5bn), making it the worst half-year since 2003 (US$ 169.9bn). Q2 2012 was the second-lowest quarterly total since Q3 2009 (US$ 98bn). The US accounted for 27.8% of aggregate global deal activity in H1 2012, down from the 36.4% share it boasted of in H1 2011. Energy, Mining & Utilities was the most active sector with US$ 59.7bn in deals, accounting for 23.1% of US M&A in H1 2012. The Consumer sector saw a welcome 139.9% increase in deal value from H1 2011 to post a H1 2012 total of US$ 35.7bn. Not surprisingly, Financial Services, constricted by multiple PR disasters and the regulatory burden of the Dodd-Frank Act, saw its H1 2012 deal value drop 45.7%; from US$ 28.7bn in H1 2011 to US$ 15.6bn in the first half of this year. Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom finished top of the H1 2012 US legal advisory table by deal value while Kirkland & Ellis comes in second, up an impressive 16 spots from H1 2011.

Fortunes varied across the region but most headed south. Australia, hit by falling commodity prices, recorded US$ 23.2bn in H1 2012 M&A, a 22.3% fall from H1 2011 (US$ 29.9bn). This was the biggest year-on-year decline of any country in the region. Asian investment (including Japan) into Europe, an oft-cited M&A trend recently, actually fell in Q2 2012; at US$ 13.3bn this was 9.1% down on Q1 2012 (US$ 14.6bn). Although H1 2012 M&A into Europe was at US$ 27.9bn, down 31% on H1 2011 (US$ 40.5bn), this was still the third-highest half-year total in eight years. Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom topped the Asia-Pacific legal advisers table by deal value, up from its H1 2011 finish of seventh.
