M&A in 2014: visual breakdown

By PitchBook
January 2, 2015

Optimistic predictions of sustained, strong M&A activity in 2015 abound already; for some context, we present a visual breakdown of M&A in 2014 below. Hefty cash hoards, competition for deals and easily accessible credit contributed to a rising median deal size, with North America posting particularly strong numbers. Although the majority of deals occurred in the B2B space, other industries performed quite well, with healthcare in particular expected to benefit from the continued strength of the biopharma sector in 2015. Browse over the datagraphic below for further details.
