The live, verified, institutional deals on BankerBay’s M&A Vault offer immense opportunities for cross-border economic action to our subscribers.
New York (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
BankerBay, the leading investment banking platform for connecting corporate deals with institutional providers of capital around the world, announced today that it has launched BankerBay M&A Vault. The new feature is designed to give subscribers access to more than 500 live M&A listings across the globe, with detailed search functionality and direct access to interested parties.
The announcement comes in the midst of a worldwide boom in corporate deal activity, with companies increasingly looking to consolidate, acquire, or merge businesses. Deal value in M&A has already reached $1 trillion for 2015, with a host of transactions waiting to kick off in the second quarter and a projected $3.7 trillion worth of anticipated deals this year. Projections will be second only to 2007, when M&A surpassed the $4 trillion mark.
In spite of the current turmoil in the global economy, market analysts and trade watchers are predicting M&A to gain momentum in 2015 due to rising competition among financial buyers and strategic acquirers looking for expansion opportunities. Large cash reserves accumulated during the last few years and the continuing low cost of debt have resulted in increased M&A action in telecommunications, media, and the technology and healthcare sectors in 2015, with other sectors anticipated to join in the race. Some project global M&A activity to increase by as much as 20% in 2015, with the U.S. leading the way.
According to the Swiss banking giant UBS, markets have been experiencing a multi-year boom, driven by search for growth and reinforced by favorable liquidity. M&A is seeing a rapid rise in the face of limited organic revenue expansion opportunities and as an attractive source of risk-adjusted growth.
