Even as total M&A volume slides, the landscape remains marked by mega-deals, as high valuations persist and industry cycles wind down. In this uncertain landscape, PitchBook's 3Q 2016 M&A Report delves into general trends across M&A activity, highlighting transaction multiples, median deal sizes, activity by size and more. In addition, the report examines activity in three dynamic sectors: consumer products & services, IT and energy, drawing on PitchBook datasets to produce analysis of key factors within those spaces.

Report Highlights Include: 

  • M&A deal flow by quarter
  • Overview of private equity's role in the M&A landscape
  • Analysis of key sectors
  • 3Q 2016 League Tables
