Worldwide mergers and acquisitions deals have fallen 23 percent to $336 billion so far this year compared with last year, but cross-border activity by amount targeting U.S.-based companies reached a record high, Thomson Reuters data shows.
After hitting a record high by deals value in 2015, worldwide M&A activity has been hurt this year by falling oil prices, worries about slowing growth in China and the health of the financial sector.
A trio of deals for U.S. companies topped the list of M&A announced this week, including Chinese company Tianjin Tianhais $6.3 billion offer for U.S.-based Ingram Micro, bringing year-to-date China outbound M&A targeting the U.S. to $23.3 billion.
China, Ireland and Canada account for 88 percent of cross-border acquirers in the U.S. so far this year.
European M&A activity, which lagged the U.S. in 2015, has hit $92 billion so far this year, up 4 percent compared with a year ago, after state-owned ChemChina announced it would buy Swiss seeds and pesticides group Syngenta for $43 billion in February.
