M&A in the energy sector is expected to accelerate swiftly over the coming months, according to Mergers & Acquisitions’ Mid-Market Pulse (MMP).

Dealmakers surveyed in July gave the sector a very high score of 78.7 for the 3-month outlook and an encouraging 67.8 for the 12-month outlook, both higher than the respective scores of 66.0 and 66.7 they gave to overall M&A on the same survey. However, the sector’s scores were not as exuberant as they were when we last looked at the energy sector in a survey just after the 2016 election. At that point, survey participants gave the energy sector a composite score of 86.0 for the 3-month outlook and a score of 90.3 for the 12-month outlook, among the highest delivered by any sector since we began the survey in the fall of 2013.
