Citigroup: M&A set for big jump this year
  • "Animal spirits are on the up," says Citigroup. "Cash piles, cheap borrowing rates, an improving global economy and increasing CEO confidence should all boost activity again in 2015.”
  • With the global equity rally boosting the value of stocks to a record $67.1T, says the team, companies would need to spend $4T on M&A to close the gap between stock prices and deal-making - that would be up 43% from 2014.
  • More than $350M in deals have been announced so far this year.
  • Europe has the most potential for boosted M&A, as last year's activity was 52% below the 2007 for the region (not including the U.K.). Citi sees deals worth $800B this year vs. $470B in 2014.
