In partnership with Mergermarket

Australia and New Zealand have been among the countries most lauded for their COVID-19 response, with rapid measures preventing widespread outbreaks of the disease.

As is the case elsewhere in the world, the shutdown has made a severe economic impact, which the region could find challenging to bounce back from.

However, M&A activity in May saw a notable increase from April, according to the new Deal Drivers: Australia & New Zealand report. Here are a few other highlights:

  • In line with a global drop in M&A activity amid the pandemic, Q1 2020 deal value dropped 54% year on year.
  • Private equity deal volume rose 61% year on year in Q1, despite value dropping 54%.
  • The technology, media and telecoms and business services sectors are the top sectors in terms of deal volume.
  • Sector watch: Dealmaking in the energy, mining and utilities sector is strong with a 20% growth in Q1 M&A deal value.
