S&C Ranks #1 in M&A Advisory League Tables

January 10, 2019

We advised clients on 173 M&A deals in 2018, for a total value of more than $450 billion (Bloomberg). Not only does the value of these deals put us at #1 in Global M&A deals, but many of the transactions were critical to our clients' businesses and allow them to achieve their strategic objectives in 2019 and beyond.

Some of our biggest deals in 2018 include the largest-ever deal for an oil refiner (Andeavor's $35.6 billion combination with Marathon Petroleum), a deal that creates a military technology giant (Harris Corporation's $35 billion pending merger of equals with L3 Technologies), one of the largest real estate investment trust takeovers ever (GGP's $28 billion acquisition by Brookfield Property Partners) and a commercial real estate deal comprised of iconic assets across major gateway U.S. cities (Forest City Realty Trust's $11.4 billion acquisition by Brookfield Asset Management).

The world's leading companies rely on S&C for “bet the company” transactions across a spectrum of industries, including consumer & retail; financial services; healthcare & life sciences; industrials & chemicals; oil & gas; sports and entertainment; and technology, media & telecommunications, among numerous others.

Regardless of the sector, S&C's global M&A team has built a reputation for advising on industry-shaping transactions that reach far beyond borders.
