IMAP closed 185 M&A deals worth more than $18 bn in Q1-Q3 2021
IMAP Partners around the world closed 185 M&A deals worth more than $18 bn during the Q1-Q3 2021 period. The boom in the market activity observed in the first half of the year continued in Q3 and indicators suggest that 2021 will close out as one of the strongest years for IMAP on record. The strong deal making environment is being sustained by a combination of high buyer demand following the pandemic lockdown pause, cheap financing, abundant private equity capital, and cash-rich companies pursuing growth opportunities, and business model changes .
IMAP deals were closed across 15 different sectors in Q3 , with Technology, Healthcare, Industrials, and Consumer & Retail the most represented. Of the 185 IMAP deals closed in Q3, 28% were crossed-border.
