Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC
The August 2011 edition of Divestiture M&A News, produced by Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC, includes the following highlights:
- Global and U.S. Divestiture Volume Drops During 2011 Q2 - While global divestiture activity has been relatively resilient during the past few years compared to the overall M&A market, 2011 second quarter activity was noticeably weaker.
- Private Equity Buyers of U.S. Divestitures Surge - While U.S. volume of divestitures has continued to decline, private equity buyers are using their large position of uninvested capital and the improving financing market to dramatically increase their presence in this area.
- The Canadians are Coming - While there has been a lot written about the buying power and interest in U.S. assets by foreign acquirers, it is interesting to analyze who the buyers are for divestitures.
