Global M&A Valuation Outlook

American Appraisal is pleased to announce the publication of its first Global M&A Valuation Outlook. Published in association with mergermarket, it provides in-depth analysis of global M&A valuation trends based on more than 25,000 valuation data points from transactions across 28 countries.

According to our research, against a backdrop of declining global deal volumes and valuations in the first half of 2012, a recent resurgence in technology and Asian M&A valuations is giving global shareholders and dealmakers hope. Our key findings include:

  • Global M&A volumes and valuations fell in H1 2012, but Asia-Pacific investors proved they were still willing to pay top prices for high-growth assets.
  • EBITDA multiples for technology deals nearly doubled last year to 14.1x, showing the resilience of this sector.
  • Despite legislative uncertainty and financial market volatility in Europe, reduced average EBITDA multiples in the region are providing an attractive valuation climate for Eurozone acquirers.
  • Central & South America was the only region to see both deal volume and value increase (by 14% and 8%, respectively) during Q2 2012.
  • Average debt to total capital in Europe fell from 22% to 15% between 2010 and 2011, fueling disposal activity and recovery in M&A valuations.
  • The return of goodwill to balance sheets suggests healthier valuation levels and recognition of the potential upside to acquisitions.
