Latin America M&As:  Mexico Jumps


Bradesco’s purchase of HSBC Brazil top M&A deal in Latin America last year.

BY JOACHIM BAMRUD

Mexico saw a strong increase in mergers and acquisitions last year, in contrast with the rest of the region.

While announced M&As in Mexico grew 37.5 percent to $19.8 billion, they fell 28.4 percent in all of Latin America and the Caribbean, reaching $92.1 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.

"2015 was a year of two 'Vs' for M&A in Latin America—much more volatility in economic, political and M&A conditions across the region, but also variety in the level of M&A activity in different countries,” says Paul Schnell, Chair of the Latin America practice at Skadden.

Meanwhile, Banco Bradesco’s $5.2 billion purchase of the Brazil assets of UK-based HSBC was the top M&A deal in Latin America last year,according to the latest ranking of Latin America’s Top 100 M&As from Latinvex using Thomson Reuters data.
