M&A Deal Data Report, Q4 2021 – Q1 2022

Hamilton Locke is pleased to release its M&A Deal Data Report. Australia experienced an incredible boom in M&A activity during 2021 and the market continues to flourish into 2022. In our half year M&A Deal Data Report, we have analysed M&A transactions which closed in Q4 of 2021 and Q1 of 2022 to highlight the key trends from the past six months, as well as considering how these trends shape the remainder of 2022.

The report identifies key themes such as advantages to Australian buyers as a result of the implementation of the new foreign investment regime, the reduction in purchase price adjustment mechanics such as ‘earnouts’ caused by shifting perceptions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the transactional consequences of a stretched W&I insurance market.
