We are delighted to release our 2023 DealMakers Report on the Australian M&A market. 

The Report draws on an empirical study of deal dynamics and terms across more than 120 Australian private M&A transactions that we advised on in calendar year 2022.

The total enterprise value of the transactions reviewed exceeded A$44 billion

The Report provides deep, data driven insights into the Australian market that inform how buyers and sellers should approach their next transaction.

  • Our analysis of 2022 Australian activity identifies significant developments across: Transaction economics, Transaction processes, Transaction certainty, Post-closing warranty and indemnities and W&I insurance 
  • We look below the headline numbers to break the data down on the basis of: Sectors, Transaction process types (auctions, bilaterals, pre-emptive right exercises etc) and Buyer and seller types (corporates, PE investors, infrastructure investors, VC investors, family offices etc).
