Appleby reports stabilised offshore M&A activity and continued high IPO levels

Appleby has reported stabilised offshore mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity and continued high levels of initial public offerings (IPOs) in the third quarter (Q3) of 2013, which the firm highlights in its latest Offshore-i report.

The latest edition of Appleby‘s quarterly report, which provides data and insight on M&A activity in major offshore financial centres, focuses on Q3 2013.

The Appleby report indicates that offshore M&A activity in the third quarter of 2013 has stabilised, with both the number of deals completed and their value remaining
broadly consistent with Q1 and Q2 2013. This confirms Appleby’s view that the market has now found a steady level of transactional activity levels and that investor confidence is returning.

According to the firm’s report, the offshore market is one of only two global regions that saw deal volumes increase in the past quarter.
