Second quarter activity saw slight increases over the first quarter of this year, but fell 36% compared to the second quarter of 2011.

Just a quick note, Yesterday’s announcement of Walgreen’s $6.7 billion, 45% purchase in Alliance Boots is included in these figures. Alongside this deal, Walgreen’s was granted the option to purchase the remaining 55% at a later date at a specific price. The “option” is also included and valued at $17.5 billion. (Once Walgreen’s takes full control of Alliance Boots they will assume their full debt load, which is quite heavy, since they were purchased by KKR in a leveraged buyout in 2006.)

The “option”, which is line with Thomson Reuters criteria, currently ranks as the year’s largest cross-border deal and the 4th largest worldwide deal. Yesterday’s $6.7 billion deal is also on the cross-border list.

Leon Saunders Calvert, Head of Global Deals at Thomson Reuters, commented: “If M&A activity is confidence driven then it is hardly surprising to see depressed volumes in the first half of 2012. Higher risk deal making in particular has suffered, including private equity buyouts and cross border acquisitions, which in turn has had consequences for emerging markets heavily reliant on foreign investment. Governments are playing a significant and direct role in driving activity and indeed it is the politicians, whom the market is dependent upon to create genuine deal making opportunities through the healthy resolution of the Eurozone crisis. The success, or otherwise, of these talks will determine the M&A pipeline for the rest of the year and into 2013.”
