BDO Horizons 2018 - Issue Two

June 21, 2018


Each quarter BDO’s Mergers & Acquisitions team analyzes global deal activity across a number of regions and selected sectors around the world. We offer a satellite view of how the M&A market is evolving — and where it appears to be heading.  

Issue Two 2018, Spring Edition, includes:

  • Global view: The outlook is positive as pressure from shareholders and the search for innovation continue to drive corporations toward M&A.
  • Special feature: Cybersecurity risks are on the rise for Private Equity dealmakers.
  • North America: Relaxed strategic buyers are plaguing M&A.
  • Technology & Media: Digitalization, intra-sector convergence and China's appetite for technology are all contributing to elevated M&A activity in the sector — and increased price levels.
  • Natural resources: Higher commodity prices signal continued M&A activity in North America.
  • Building Products & Services: A hotbed for M&A activity across the globe.
