M&A Predictor – January 2014 

KPMG’s M&A Predictor looks at the appetite and capacity for M&A deals by tracking and projecting important indicators 12 months forward. This issue shows a growing appetite for deals in 2014 according to analyst predictions with predicted forward P/E ratios up 16 percent in December 2013 when compared to 12 months ago.

This reflects the last half of the year, which saw a 17 percent increase in forward P/E between June and December 2013. This was compared to a 1 percent fall in the previous 6 months, after concerns over the anticipated mid-year tapering of quantitative easing in the US.


The increase in appetite is matched by an anticipated increase of capacity of 12 percent over the next year.
