BDO International Limited Q3 2016 Global Mid-Market M&A Horizons Report

August 2016

BDO is delighted to present our third quarterly report for 2016, examining mid-market M&A activity across 17 major regions and selected sectors around the world.

Our team in Brazil has prepared a special feature for this edition of Horizons. As proud hosts of the Olympic Games in Rio 2016, they wanted to bring attention to other aspects of the Brazilian economy and highlight investment opportunities in the country.

As expected, Q2 mid-market M&A did not match its 2014 or 2015 levels, but did outstrip Q1 2016 activity. In this issue of BDO HORIZONS, we highlight the factors behind these trends. As we move further into 2016, it is also the perfect time to look ahead.

Our analyses and predictions are divided into 17 regions and eight sectors to provide an in-depth understanding of what's going on and how the market is most likely to evolve. Our focus is on the M&A midmarket which includes transactions from USD 10m up to USD 500m.
