In this month’s M&A At A Glance, we review the most significant trends in M&A activity for the month of April.  The data show that global M&A activity declined by most measures, marking the lowest number of global deals in the last twelve months.  Meanwhile, U.S. deal volume increased by 58.4 percent even as the number of deals declined by 27.1 percent.  Among other highlights: crossborder activity declined, with the exception of U.S. inbound deals; and healthcare surpassed oil and gas as the most active U.S. target industry by volume.
