According to Grant Thornton’s half-yearly deal tracker report, there were 739 deals worth $22.8 billion reported in the first six months of 2015 against 554 deals worth $22.3 billion in the same period last year.

Private Equity (PE) deals rose to 462 worth $7.1 billion in H1 against 285 deals worth $5.1 billion in H1 2014. There was growth in terms of volume and value, even though the average deal size  reduced due to the ripple effect created by the e-commerce boom that led to increased investor interest in start-ups.

Strategic M&A deal value in 2015 dropped for the first time since 2012 to $15.8 billion (277 deals) from $17.1 billion (269 deals) which implies reduction in ticket size of M&A deals. The top three sectors for M&A deals this year were Energy and Natural Resources, IT & ITeS and Manufacturing.
