Mergers and acquisitions operations in Brazil ended 2021 with record performance, registering 1963 transactions in the last twelve months. This mark exceeds by 59% the total verified throughout 2019, which was, until then, the best year in the historical series, concluded with 1231 negotiations. In this way, the results for 2021 consolidate last year as the best period since 1996, the year in which the survey was initiated by KPMG.

The study also indicated that the last quarter of last year also registered records, with 602 completed deals. Maintaining the upward trend observed in recent months, this was the best quarter in history in any type of comparison and still showed strong growth compared to previous quarters of 2021 (respectively, from the first to the penultimate, 375, 429 and 557).

Of the total transactions carried out last year, most transactions were domestic (1289), that is, carried out between Brazilian companies. In second place are operations of type CB1 (581), followed by CB4 (40), CB2 (39) and CB3 (9) and CB5 (5).

“These results consolidate the trend of investment in digital transformation and innovation carried out by Brazilian and multinational companies, which have made strategic contributions in various business segments. This also indicates that confidence in businesses related to innovation remains on a growing path with investors strategic and financial since the beginning of the pandemic, in 2020”, emphasizes the leading partner of M&A Owner of KPMG in Brazil, Luis Motta.

With regard to the business segments, in the accumulated of 2021, the leadership in the ranking was for internet companies, which carried out 658 mergers and acquisitions operations during the last year, representing 34% of the total transactions in the year. Next, information technology, with 358 businesses, representing 18%. Together, these two sectors accounted for more than half of total operations in Brazil this year.

The segment of financial institutions was also strongly impacted by several types of transactions (161), most of which were also in pursuit of innovative business models. The ranking with the highest number of transactions ends with service companies (78), hospitals and clinical analysis laboratories (70) and media and telecommunications (66), the latter sector being heavily impacted by transactions in infrastructure and connectivity for innovative models.
