After a particularly strong first quarter due to large deals in the oil & gas sector, African activity in the second quarter of 2017 returned to normal with 142 transactions for USD 4.6bn. Overall for the six months, deal flow was flat y/y at 347 deals while the total value of M&A surged 80% to USD 14.5bn.
The still low prices of hydrocarbons and metals have taken a toll on the valuation of sector companies, which was reflected in the surge in big oil & gas deals during H1. However, a recent report by the World Bank suggests that energy commodities and metals may become more expensive by 2018, thus improving the outlook for the sector but also increasing the cost of M&A.
