M&A market update: Q3 2017 – Free falling

Report summary

Global upstream M&A activity weakened considerably in Q3 2017. The result was the lowest quarterly deal count since the nadir of the oil-price-induced slowdown in Q1 2015, and the lowest third-quarter figure in over 10 years. However, two standout deals – contributing 65% of the quarterly total – saw global deal spend reach a healthy US$35.8 billion. In this M&A monthly market update: • A review of upstream M&A trends • A summary of the month’s biggest announced deals • Commentary on the current Deal Pipeline (potential / rumoured deals)
