Deal Drivers: Americas Q3 2021

In partnership with Mergermarket, an Acuris company

M&A in the Americas is back with a bang. Despite lingering COVID-19 disruptions in some South and Central America countries and the Caribbean, all regions have had a better 2021.

The main engine driving this recovery is undoubtedly the US market. Over the first nine months of this year it generated deals valuing US$1.96tn from 5,643 transactions, accounting for the majority of the region’s total deal value (US$2.2tn) and volume (7,019 deals).

Recovering commodity prices are supporting export countries across Latin America, lifting economic prospects. Dealmakers are returning to the fold, driving increases in deal volume and value outside the US. And one thing they can expect in the near term is intensified activity in financial services across the Americas.

With dealmaking surging to new highs during 2021’s first nine months, a banner year is in the cards. Download Deal Drivers: Americas Q3 2021 to find out more.
