The Technology M&A Review, Third Edition: United States

October 27, 2022

Overall M&A activity in the first half of 2022 fell substantially from comparable 2021 activity levels. In the first six months of 2022, US merger values dropped by approximately 35 per cent to US$827 billion compared with the 2021 first half amount of US$1.3 trillion.2 The number of deals involving US companies fell approximately 25 per cent from comparable first-half 2021 numbers, with the second quarter showing a greater decline than the first. Of course, this decline is from a record-breaking full 2021, and 2022 will likely remain in the top five years even for M&A activity absent a disastrous second half. US M&A activity accounted for roughly 47 per cent of global M&A by value.
