Global M&A Review


The following report details mergers and acquisitions activity in 2017 using data from the Zephyr database. Several world regions attracted more value in 2017 than in 2016. Examples include Western Europe, where value climbed 6 per cent from USD 1,213,785 million to USD 1,281,917 million over the 12 months.

Once again, the US attracted the most investment in 2017, and also topped the country rankings by volume. Its nearest rival on both fronts was China, followed by the UK.
