For Q2 oil (WTI Cushing) traded up on the quarter vs Q1. For Q1 WTI prices ranged from $40.20 to $26.21 whereas in Q2 WTI traded within a band of $35.70 to has high as $51.23 per barrel. However, WTI has failed to consistently trade over the $50/bbl mark. Global supply has provided immense downward pressure with US crude inventories hovering near all-time highs, while no cuts in global production have been made. Despite several global energy summits primarily led by the OPEC nations, no production cuts were achieved. Overall, with oil failing to break out to higher prices there is still immense pressure on oil producers around the world, with many companies previously forecasting their operations in the triple digit per barrel range.
Looking back at the designated period for ATM issuances, Energy ATMs have fallen in terms of total Commitment Amount: by over 60% from $5,628m to $2,224m.
The drop in energy new issuance was not specific to only the ATM market as High Yield bond issuances has also been impacted. According to our sister company IGM (Informa Global Markets), high yield energy issuance in the first half of 15’ produced $13,525m whereas the first half of 16’ priced 6 energy trades (all priced in Q2) for $5,325m. The slowdown in energy was also noticeable in the IG bond market with new issues slowing from $59,800m in the first half of 15’ to $38,194m in the first half of 16’
Looking at the healthcare sector, M&A played a huge role in driving last year's IG volume. Overall, healthcare M&A trades amassed $110.550bn in prints last year, accounting for 40.20% percent of all M&A deals and 8.83% of overall USD IG corporate bonds ($1,252.495bn ex-SSA final volume).
For 2016, healthcare continues to be a driver, though the figures aren’t quite as impressive just yet. So far on the year healthcare has clocked in $32.00bn in M&A prints, accounting for 20.17% of this year's collective $158.685bn in M&A prints.
