Global H1 2014 Energy, Mining & Utilities M&A Trend Report

Mergermarket Releases H1 2014 Energy, Mining & Utilities M&A Trend Report

Highlights include:

• Q2 2014’s global M&A targeting the Energy, Mining & Utilities (EMU) sector recovered from a subdued Q1. Deal value increased 68.8% to US$ 143.8bn with 400 deals, up from 345 deals valued at US$ 85.2bn Q1 2014 and marking the highest valued quarter in over a year (Q4 2012 valued at US$ 190.4bn)

• The growth in Q2 contributed to H1 2014 deals valued at US$ 229.1bn increasing very slightly on H1 2013 (US$ 218.3bn), up 4.9%. Despite the growth though, the market share the EMU sector had in total global M&A during H1 2014 remained at a low 14.5% compared to 21.7% during the same time last year, this was the lowest half-year proportion since H1 2006 (12.8%)

• Q2’s comeback was primarily because of the dominant Energy sub-sector which reached the highest quarterly value in Q2 2014 (US$ 107.9bn) since Q4 2012, over 40% higher compared to both Q2 2013 (43.9%) and Q1 2014 (49.6%). Energy deal value in H1 2014 (US$ 180bn) was up 16.5% from H1 2013
