Q4’22 Update on M&A Trends and Outlook

The team at Evalueserve, a provider of banking and advisory support services, is back with another iteration of our M&A Outlook Report, covering 10 Major M&A markets, as we move into 2023. M&A activity in 2022 took a drastic downward turn in the second half of 2022 driven by a global economic slowdown fueled by elevated inflation, higher financing costs and geopolitical conflicts.

Continued geopolitical uncertainties and resulting costs & supply related disruptions in second half of 2022 led to a significant reduction in deal making globally, with a few emerging economies showing resilience to a challenging external environment. As per Evalueserve M&A Market Index, developed markets like the UK and the US have showed significant decline in comparative scores since our last update.

The Evalueserve M&A Market Index covers three key scenarios – Global factors, Economic factors, and Deal activity. It covers 10 countries and each country is benchmarked on pre-and post-COVID parameters to derive a comparative score.

Global economic growth is expected to decelerate and faces major headwinds in 2023 – steadily increasing interest rates as part of policy tightening, soaring inflation in developed economies, geopolitical turmoil involving energy exporters and continued supply chain disruptions are expected to impact the global M&A market.
