Appetite for deals still fragile

Analysts are expecting the world’s largest corporates to show an increasing appetite for deals compared with June2012, with predicted forward P/E ratios (our measure of corporate appetite) 14 percent higher than 12 months ago. However, macroeconomic factors (such as nervousness over the continuation of quantitative easing) continue to impact forward P/E ratios which have returned to the levels seen at the start of the year.

Despite the uncertainty in the markets, the capacity to transact, as measured by forecast net debt to EBITDA, holds steady.
