With the opening quarter of the year already come and gone, we can now look at some of the preliminary facts & figures that capture global M&A activity during the past three months. Spectra Energy's $43 billion deal was the quarter's most significant, but plenty of other trends and points of interest emerged as quarterly deal counts look set for a fifth consecutive decline since 4Q 2015's high of 7,279 transactions.
You can find it all in this quarter-end datagraphic powered by the PitchBook Platform, which breaks down global 1Q 2017 M&A activity, including deal flow, top acquirers and more.
