M&A at a Glance (November 2012)

November 16, 2012 Read the memo

Attached is the November issue of Paul, Weiss's M&A at a Glance publication.  Although September showed some weakening in the M&A market, October rebounded strongly, as global and U.S. M&A deal volume, number of deals and  average size of deals all increased.  In fact, October had the highest total deal volume, number of deals and average deal size both in the U.S. and globally since our M&A at a Glance publication began in April of this year.  Deal volume, number of deals and average deal size generally increased in our tracked sectors of strategic, sponsor-related and crossborder transactions, except for a small dip in the number of sponsor-related deals.  See Figure 1.  We also note that there was a significant increase in the proportion of deals using cash and stock as merger consideration, up to 40% of October deals, as opposed to 8.6% of deals over the last 12 months.  See Figure 8.
