Bank Restructuring to Drive Mergers in 2014

Executive Summary

•Banking mergers and acquisitions (M&As) may help address key issues facing the industry, such as the need to cope with capital shortfalls, improve liquidity, strengthen and derisk balance sheets, create robust banking platforms, upgrade technology to meet changing customer needs, enhance overseas presence, integrate multiple business units, and dispose of non-core and unprofitable business divisions. Such mergers that generate synergies of scale increase financial strength, reduce risks, or create greater operating efficiency are likely to shift the industry and create a more sustainable business model that can deal with declining returns on equity and the changing regulatory landscape.
•While banking mergers in 2007–2008 were driven by government rescue operations, the nationalization of failed banks, government-led M&A transactions, and bailouts of big participants, 2011–2013 mergers are a result of bank restructuring activities and strategies to comply with the changing regulatory and industry landscape.
•M&A deal volume declined at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) ofxx% between 2007 and 2012. The deal value declined at a CAGR of xx% during the same period. The global banking M&A deal volume stood at xx deals for a disclosed deal value of $xxbillion for xx months, ending in September 2013. The same was recorded at xx deals for a disclosed deal value of $xx billion in 2007. Such a decline in merger activity is due to a decline in investor confidence in the banking industry and an unfavorable macroeconomic environment across geographies.
•North America continues to be the hub of merger activity in 2013 with a large proportion of domestic mergers and few outbound transactions in Europe and Asia-Pacific. European P&C companies, on the other hand, are actively restructuring their business units across the globe and have been active in many outbound transactions in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. While Africa and the Middle East show huge growth potential in the banking space, a lack of transparency is hampering M&A activity. Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Caribbean feature domestic merger activity, and banks from developed countries seek to strengthen distribution networks in low-penetrated countries within the region.
