Reflecting on Q1 2021: Historic Levels of M&A
Throughout the first quarter of 2021, developments in the vaccine rollout and renewed optimism among businesses fueled recovery in many global economies, resulting in $1.3 trillion in global M&A—the largest figure for Q1 in history.
Private equity-backed deals represented 19% of global M&A in Q1, hitting $249 billion and doubling Q1 2020 metrics. In addition, continued momentum from Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) and growth in cross-border dealmaking powered M&A activity.
Following a record quarter with record backlog, Lincoln expects continued strong activity supporting clients throughout 2021 as businesses rebound, markets continue to stabilize and investors pursue growth at a rapid clip.
