A Healthy Pipeline of Deals: M&A Transactions in the Healthcare Industry

M&A is playing an increasingly important role in the changing landscape of the healthcare industry with a growth in these types of transactions globally.

In 2017, the value of M&A deals in the industry rose 27 per cent to $332 billion and the deal count increased 16 per cent.

The US has been particularly prevalent in this area, with a recent study by Mergermarket showing that there were 579 deals for healthcare targets in 2017, the second-highest on record.
