Global Transactions Forecast: The Impact of Macro Trends on Future M&A and IPO Activity

The fundamental drivers of global transactions are pointing to a continued strong upturn in M&A and IPOs over the next three years, reveals a unique new forecast produced by Oxford Economics for the global law firm, Baker & McKenzie. The forecasts show completed global M&A transactions rising to US$2.7 trillion in 2015 before accelerating to US$3.4 trillion in 2017. The outlook for IPO transactions follows a similar pattern with activity expected to peak at US$322.7 billion in 2017. Key to the strong performance in transaction activity is the healthy financial positions of corporates and easy monetary policy and lower oil prices that has improved corporates’ confidence in the outlook.
