A new wave of acquisitions and mergers is expected, as the appetite for transactions reaches the highest level in the last five years

The mergers and acquisitions (M&A) market is expected to grow, as an overwhelming percentage of 56% of global companies intend to perform acquisitions in the next 12 months – shows the twelfth edition of the EY study, Global Capital Confidence Barometer.

The EY bi-annual study was conducted amongst 1,600 executive directors from 54 countries. According to the extracted data, at this moment, we are registering the biggest appetite for making acquisitions in the past five years.

 

The Barometer’s results show that the M&A market is about to reach new highs. As the global value of transactions has already increased by 13% in 2014, the willingness for mergers and acquisitions seems to have installed itself firmly, with almost half of the companies (47%) intending to make more transactions next year than in the past 12 months.
