Various news outlets are reporting M&A revivals in the UK and US. In the Middle East the news is also positive where there is talk of a “revival”, according to Reuters. But India is down 66% this year, according to Silicon India and so is Europe, according to CityAM. Clearly, the picture is not the same across the world’s economic zones.
Bloomberg reports that UK stocks advanced this week due to an increase in M&A activity which are ongoing despite concern that central banks may scaleback stimulus measures. The US is a particularly bright spot, according to InvestorPlace, which published a longer report with views on why dealmaking is stronger this year, but still not as strong as last year to date, and how long the trend might last.
