Mergers and acquisitions deals are generally useful tools for gaining insight about the way where the economy is heading into, in that, they are pure tests for investor sentiment.

Firstly, I aim to focus on global activity to able to understand the macro trends in the market.
The US saw increased deal values in 2Q13 from 1Q13, while all other areas apart. This is simply a sign of the US economic progress. The global M%A valued at $896.1bn in the first half of 2013 was down 12,5% compared to last year and suffered from 12.2% fewer deals.
Secondly, with staying fully focused on Turkey, the recent political unrest and deteriorating economic outlook act as a contributor to the drop, while M&A deal value down by 68.2% to $2.1bn in 2Q13 from $6.6bn in 1Q13. The number of deals were 37 and 26 respectively,
Here I finish my words with a bottom line here. Changing global conditions are potential downside drivers of M&A deals in every part of the planet as risk sentiment rises. At this point, emerging markets are first to be harmed by low tide, and it goes without saying Turkey is one of them.
And, here I have some to tell more, this is a list of financial advisors’ activities in the market ranked by the value and by the volume, according to the data of Mergermarket.
