“August witnessed a little over 130 deals, valued at $3.6 bn; around 40 per cent above the same month last year. On M&A, cross-border deal value increased by 45 per cent as compared to August 2015, and there was an almost three-fold increase in value in domestic M&A, which contributed over $2.5 bn. PE activity seems to have declined once again this month, both in value and volume."
