XBMA Quarterly Review

Q3 2015

Raaj Narayan & Francis Stapleton, Editors
The views expressed herein reflect only the views of XBMA’s editorial staff individually and not those of any of
XBMA’s founders, academic partners, advisory board members, or others.

Global M&A Volume: Q3 Snapshot
 Global M&A volume in Q3 exceeded US$1 trillion, a quarterly figure second only to
2015’s Q2 in recent years. M&A volume through the first three quarters was US$3.2
trillion (an increase of 30% over the same period in 2014), and year-to-date volume
through the date of publication is the strongest on record. These USD figures were
recorded despite the strength of the dollar when measuring values for deals struck in
other currencies.
 North American targets accounted for more than US$600 billion of the US$1 trillion of
global M&A volume in Q3, with a significant portion of that activity attributable to a
series of transformative strategic deals involving U.S. companies, albeit often highly
globalized competitors.
 At its current pace, pure cross-border M&A activity will account for 35% of global deal
volume in 2015, which is consistent with recent levels. Three of the 10 largest deals in Q3
were cross-border transactions, with the balance involving U.S. companies.
 Megadeals continued in Q3, with deals in excess of US$10 billion accounting for
approximately 37% of global M&A volume. Six deals in Q3 exceeded US$20 billion in
value.

Global M&A Volume: 1998–2015
 Global M&A activity in 2015 is on pace to reach US$4.2 trillion, a nearly 30% jump
compared to 2014 (itself the strongest year since 2007).
 Despite the recent stock market volatility, concerns about a slowing Chinese economy,
falling commodity prices, and the prospect of near-term interest rate increases in the
United States, M&A activity has carried its momentum through 2015. This trend is
largely being driven by large corporate cash balances (carried at virtually zero return)
and still relatively high stock prices that together provide strong acquisition currency;
attractive financing for most corporate borrowers; continued industry consolidation and
competitive pressure; and the search for global scale and synergies.
 Looking ahead, while falling stock prices could reduce some companies’ appetites for
M&A, cheaper valuations could also make attractive targets, particularly as strategic
companies seek to consolidate market position and book returns through external
growth.

Cross-Border M&A Volume: 2008–2015
 Cross-border M&A activity is on pace to reach US$1.5 trillion in 2015, which would
shatter last year’s relative high. The percentage of global deal volume attributable to
cross-border transactions remains steady at approximately 35%.
 The volume of deals involving a developed economy acquirer and an emerging economy
target has slowed. The slowdown in some emerging economies may shift focus to targets
in the United States and other developed economies as companies still look to
acquisitions to fuel growth.
 On the other hand, the volume of deals involving an emerging economy acquirer and
developed economy target is on pace to exceed US$150 billion, approaching levels last
seen in 2008.

Medium and Large M&A Deals: 2007–2015
 Although the total number of deals in Q3 declined relative to Q3 2014, the number of large
deals continues to increase year over year, driving the increase in overall M&A volume. At
the current pace, the number of deals exceeding US$500 million will increase 10%
compared to 2014.
 Each of the top six deals in Q3 exceeded US$20 billion in value, and the top eight deals
exceeded US$15 billion in value.
 Each of the 10 largest deals in Q3 involved a U.S. target, reflective of the large number of
transformative strategic mergers in the United States.

M&A Volume by Target Region
 The United States and China turned in very strong quarters relative to recent market
share, producing 48% and 17%, respectively, of global M&A volume. Together with
Europe, these three economies accounted for approximately 87% of global M&A activity
in Q3 (compared to a recent average of 75%).
 The emerging economic regions of Central Asia, South America, Africa/Middle East,
India, Mexico, and Central America produced an aggregate of 6% of global M&A volume
in Q3, compared to a recent aggregate average of 14%.

GDP and M&A
Volume by Target’s Region: Q3 2015
 The United States is producing a smaller percentage of global M&A than world GDP.
This represents a shift from recent years, and one indicator of potential room for
additional M&A growth in the U.S. market.
 In addition to Europe and China, each of Central Asia, Canada, and Australia/NZ are
contributing a greater share of global M&A than world GDP, likely due in part to the large
volume of Energy & Power deals as companies around the world react to falling
commodity prices.

Trends in M&A Volume by
Target Region: 2011–2015
 North America accounted for approximately 60% of global M&A activity in Q3, compared
to 45% in Q2. The US$600 billion in North American M&A volume is the strongest
performance of any region in recent years, far exceeding the average North American
volume since 2011 of US$340 billion per quarter.
 Asian-Pacific and European M&A activity each fell to approximately US$200 billion,
declining 42% and 30%, respectively, relative to recent peaks in Q2. Notwithstanding its
quarterly decline, Asian-Pacific M&A activity still exceeded its average volume since 2011
of US$150 billion per quarter, and European M&A remained on par with its average
quarterly performance over that period.

M&A in BRIC Countries: 2011–2015
 The level of inbound M&A into China continued to seesaw, increasing 50% over Q2 to
approximately US$15 billion. Aggregate inbound M&A volume into all BRIC countries
reached US$25 billion, an increase over Q2 but still below the recent high of US$50
billion reached in early 2011.

 Domestic M&A activity in Brazil reached US$8 billion following two quarters of very
little M&A activity, reaching levels more consistent with prior years. Aggregate domestic
deal activity within the BRIC countries reached US$125 billion in Q3, with China
accounting for US$110 billion of this amount.

Distressed Deals: 1989–2015
 Distressed deal activity in 2015 is on pace to reach approximately US$45 billion, and
includes the US$12.6 billion acquisition of Oncor Electric Delivery in Q3.
 If distressed deal activity continues at its current pace, 2015 volume would represent a
significant jump from 2013–2014 levels, although still well below the 2009-2012 postcrisis period.

All figures are inflation-adjusted to 2015 dollars. 2015 data is annualized. Distressed transactions include those
in which the target entity is undergoing restructuring or has reduced the debt on its balance sheet through a
bankruptcy sale, a tender offer or an exchange offer for existing debt securities, or a loan modification. An entity
is considered to be undergoing restructuring if it has publicly confirmed retention of a restructuring advisor, plans
to restructure its debt, has filed for bankruptcy or has defaulted on its debt, has received an S&P or Moody’s rating
of CCC+/Caa1 or below before or in reaction to the announcement of a transaction, or its credit facility or debt
securities carry a yield of 1,000 bps above that of U.S. Treasuries.

Global M&A by Sector: Last 12 Months
 Notwithstanding the collapse of the price of oil, the Energy & Power sector produced
US$635 billion (16%) of global M&A volume over the past 12 months, with nearly a third
of that figure represented by cross-border deals. Healthcare followed with US$570
billion (14%) of global M&A volume over the past 12 months.
 The Energy & Power, Healthcare, and Financials sectors have produced the largest
volume of cross-border M&A activity over the past 12 months, each exceeding US$180
billion. Cross-border M&A represented 53% of deal activity in the Financials sector and
over 40% of deal volume in each of the Industrials, Materials, Telecommunications, and
