According to the data released by financial data provider Refinitiv on April 2, global M&A activity declined by 28%, from US$964 billion in Q1’29 to US$698 billion in Q1’20, the lowest level since 2016. The destructive impact of COVID-19 on the global economy began to appear in March, making the slow start of this year worse. The transaction value of US M&A market halved to US$205 billion in the first quarter, the Asia-Pacific market decreased by more than 15% YoY to US$149 billion, and the European market increased to US$222 billion. The rise in Europe was mainly because of the M&A transactions closed before the pandemic.

In the first quarter, the top three global cross-border M&A sectors were "finance”, "technology, media and telecom" and "industrial products and raw materials", with transaction value exceeding US$100 billion respectively. The transaction value in the medical field was US$42 billion, accounting for 6.8% of the total. Due to the announcement of Aon’s acquisition of Willis Towers Watson for US$30 billion and Tesco’s sale of its Southeast Asian stores for US$10 billion, the market recovered briefly, but far from an actual market recovery. Large M&A deals completed in Q1’20 include: Natura, a Brazilian beauty group, acquired Avon Products for US$3.7 billion, becoming the fourth largest beauty group in the world with annual revenue exceeding US$10 billion. After the acquisition, the company now has several major brands such as Avon, Natura, The Body Shop and Aesop. Novartis, a Swiss pharmaceutical giant, acquired Novartis for US$9.7 billion. The core asset of this acquisition is Inclisiran, a cholesterol-lowering RNAi drug. Gardner Denver completed the merger with Ingersoll Rand Industrial Group, and the new company after the merger was named Ingersoll Rand.
