NEW YORK — A deteriorating environment in Mergers & Acquisitions sent deals by SEC registrants spiraling downward in 2022, according to a new report from Intelligize® based on data available on the research platform. The Intelligize M&A Report also suggested a rebound in M&A activity may not occur immediately, as a number of factors responsible for the downturn last year — increased regulatory scrutiny, a gloomy economic outlook, tightening in the equity and credit markets, and geopolitical tensions — persist into 2023.
The report, which studied registrants’ deal-related disclosures and SEC comment letters on the Intelligize platform, as well as material from different federal regulators, revealed a sharp decline in the number of M&A deals announced by SEC registrants in 2022. Meanwhile, the number of terminated M&A deals nearly doubled during the same period. The report also analyzed data on special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), which began attracting heavy regulatory scrutiny in 2021 that may have foretold trouble ahead in the M&A markets.
“The Intelligize M&A Report demonstrates the power of our platform to quantify market-wide trends as well as reveal insights on specific companies and deals,” said Scott Mirbagheri, analyst and author of the report. “Our report shows not only the steep drop in M&A activity by SEC registrants in 2022, but also the factors behind it. Regulatory concerns sunk multiple deals, while additional factors spelling trouble for the M&A space included difficulties in obtaining attractive financing; geopolitical uncertainty, particularly in Ukraine and China; and a negative economic outlook.”
In addition to its data-driven analysis, The Intelligize M&A Report examines troubled M&A deals from 2021 and 2022 to illustrate the market’s challenges. They include the following deals :
