Outlook for US M&A and PE in changing times- state of the market

According to Mergermarket data, US M&A was worth US$309.58 billion in Q3- a marked decrease from the previous two years.  The decline of M&A value and volume in the US was exacerbated by rising interest rates, soaring inflation and geopolitical uncertainties. With economic and geopolitical headwinds, however, come opportunities, A reset in valuations, the availability of capital and the competitiveness from cash-rich corporates will provide impetus for deal activity. Our panel of M&A and PE experts will unpack the current deal landscape, discuss current trends in the market and provide an overview of the macroeconomic climate in the US.

  • How will macroeconomic factors, including interest rate volatility, supply chain issues and inflation impact corporate activity in the region?
  • Have dealmakers seen a shift in opportunities and the types of deals they have been working on? 
  • Will corporate divestitures be on the rise in 2023, and will we see more take-privates and carve-outs as valuations continue to decline? 
  • Where do the bright spots remain, and what are the challenges that lie ahead from both a financial sponsor and strategic corporate perspective?
