In this edition of Founders’ Private Capital Markets Update, our team looks at the key factors impacting the current state of the M&A market. The global M&A market has remained resilient despite underlying macroeconomic concerns, with overall value down 13.7% YoY, coming off a record 2021.
Our update touches on multiple factors impacting the market, including:
- Banking strains across the U.S. and Europe
- The Federal Reserve raising interest rates to curb inflation
- Buyers looking to take advantage of cheaper prices
- Increased cost of capital
- Defensive market tenor
