On 12 March 2020, Gilbert + Tobin released the 2020 edition of its Takeovers + Schemes Review, which examines 2019’s public M&A transactions valued at over $50 million.
After a seven-year high for public M&A transaction activity in 2018, activity softened in 2019 with a decrease in both the value and number of transactions.
In this Key Highlights report, we outline the success rates for M+A in 2019 and the key sectors of interest to bidders. We explore the extensive contribution made by private equity firms and foreign bidders to public M&A activity and the response of the regulators following the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.
