In this edition of BDO M&A Horizons, our M&A partners across the Globe analyse recent deal activity and trends and look ahead at what we can expect for the rest of the year.
Our analysis of data shows that whilst M&A activity is still high, it overall declined in the first half of the year back to pre-COVID levels. And once again, the most noticeable aspect in the first six months was the prominence of private equity investments with nearly 38% of the total deal activity.
As we go into the second half of 2023, we expect to continue seeing healthy levels of transactions, as corroborated by our heat charts and aided by private equity continuing a strong investment focus.
