    Navigating Macro Headwinds: Singapore M&A Sails Through Choppy Waters


BDO Singapore M&A Trend Report 2022

17 April 2023

From a standout year of dealmaking in 2021, there was much anticipation that 2022 will continue in this trajectory. Fast forward to 24 February 2022; Russia invaded Ukraine. The ensuing impact on global trade had exacerbated the already-fragile state of the global economy. Dealmakers again found themselves navigating a sea of uncertainties – soaring inflation, tightened monetary policies, increasing cost of borrowing, and geopolitical tensions especially between the Unites States and China causing further market volatilities.

Singapore mirrored the global trend of M&A activities in 2022. While the number of announced deals increased by 32% in 2022 from the previous year, announced deal values recorded a 33% decline. Notwithstanding, 2022 has recorded a stellar performance when compared to the pre-pandemic era in both deal volume and deal value.
