Deal Dynamics - new cross-border M&A data tool launches today

Diversified Industrials, Energy, Real Estate, and TMT sectors drive the M&A market in Q3 2018, according to new data from Hogan Lovells and Mergermarket.

Hogan Lovells has launched today a powerful new global cross-border M&A tool, in partnership with Mergermarket. Deal Dynamics combines interactive deal data by markets and sectors with exclusive editorial content to provide insights on cross-border M&A. 

The Deal Dynamics tool allows users to mine cross-border data set by date range, geography, sector, value and volume to create market snapshots, compare activity levels and assess cross-border and domestic deal flows. The data reaches back to Q1 2010 and offers global market trends across ten industries and seven regions.

Q3 2018 M&A activity was led by four key industry sectors – Diversified Industrials, Energy, Real Estate and TMT.  Four market insights reports analyzing the sectors are now available on the Deal Dynamics website:

  • Diversified industrials look across borders for deals as M&A volume surpasses all other sectors: M&A remains a key component of corporate growth strategies in the diversified industrials sector, which achieved the highest deal volume across all sectors in Q3.
  • Stable oil price helps energy and natural resources top all other sectors by M&A value in Q3 2018: a renewed confidence in larger energy & natural resources cross-border deals correlates with a continued recovery in the oil price. Renewables dealmaking continued to rise.
  • Asian interest in international assets propels real estate M&A to its highest value quarter in 2018: cross-border real estate activity in Q3 was driven by strong Asian interest in international property assets, along with a record level of dry powder available for investment.
  • TMT sees volume and value of deals rise above quarterly averages, as tech M&A leads the way: the TMT sector attracted the second highest number of cross-border deals across all sectors in Q3, as businesses strive to improve their digital capabilities and stay ahead of the curve.

Also available is an interview with Joe Gette, Assistant General Counsel M&A and Securities at PPG, on drivers of dealmaking in the Diversified Industrial sector, as well as interviews with Hogan Lovells head of TMT, Peter Watts, on the effect of digital disruption in the market, and Hogan Lovells partner, Sarah Shaw, on how shale, renewables and private equity are transforming the M&A landscape.
