M&A In Latin America

M&A In Latin America: Americas Region

by Deloitte
Majority of M&A deals in Latin America during 2016 have been intra-regional. Industries such as financial services, consumer business, and energy and resources attracted many large investments in the region. Improving US markets may boost M&A in the region as it was the second largest investor during 2015-2016. However, weak oil and commodity prices may act as deterrents to M&A activity in the region.

Figure 1 UK M&A volumes and values (H1 2005 - H1 2016)

by Deloitte
In the aftermath of the EU referendum vote, the reaction from currency and stock markets has been swift. It is clear that Brexit has shaken investor confidence. However, M&A markets are typically driven by longer term decision making processes. Brexit has created uncertainties and some M&A plans are being put on hold.

M&A Index – 2016: Opportunities Amidst Divergence

by Deloitte
We are expecting 2015 to end with over $4 trillion worth of deals making it the highest for deal values since 2007. However, on a last-twelve-months (LTM) basis, there was a slowdown in the volume of transactions in the second half of 2015. Cross-border deals are a major feature of this M&A wave. More than $1 trillion worth of cross-border deals have been announced so far this year, of which a third were in the vibrant deal corridor between North America and Europe. […] Read more

Two powerful and decades-long trends in business look set to intersect with increasing impact in coming years: the steady, significant expansion of the chief financial officer’s (CFO) role, and the still-evolving effects of sustainability considerations on corporate strategies and operations. But many CFOs, though they have these issues “on their screens,” have not yet fully engaged with the new risks — and opportunities — that the “sustainability imperative” presents. […] Read more

In an effort to restore public confidence in the capital markets and the accounting profession, which were shaken by the collapse of a number of well-regarded companies, U.S. President George Bush signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
