Colin McIntyre is PwC’s U.S. Digital Deals Leader.

The M&A market remains strong, but high valuations mean loftier deal prices. Total US deal value in the first half of 2021 was the highest ever, according to a PwC analysis of Refinitiv data. U.S. private equity deal value also is well ahead of the record pace of 2020. In this environment, creating value in deals is more challenging.
