mergermarket Latin America M&A Round-up H1 2009
Contents LatAm M&A down although worst might be over
• For the first half of the year M&A in Latin America reached a total of $29.1bn and 167 deals. For the same period last year, these
p.2-6 Latin America M&A overview numbers stood at $52bn and 261 deals. But yet despite the near 45% drop in value, and a 36% drop in deal volume, there are
indications that the worst may be over. Q2 saw a jump of 82% in deal value to $18.8bn compared to Q1 09, whilst deal volume
p.10-15 Brazilian M&A remained steady.
• These numbers do not compare to the same period 12 months ago, but then neither does the economic climate. With that in mind,
p.15-18 Mexican M&A deal makers will be happy to see that valuations are once again on the increase while deal activity remains steady

p.38 Criteria Brazil key factor in LatAm “recovery”


• Between 2003 and 2007, Brazil always had the greatest share of Latin American M&A value averaging 38% of total activity by value and
p.38 About mergermarket 32.6% by volume.
• For 2008 and the first half of 2009, the value of Brazilian M&A represented more than 70% of total Latin American deal value. Deal
activity meanwhile increased to over 46% of all Latin American deals over the last 18 months. Although not immune to the overall
global economic climate, Brazil remained the main driver of Latin American M&A value and is possibly the key to an improved second
half of 2009 for the region as a whole.
• Mexico, from a high of almost 40% in 2006 has dropped to just under 2% of total deal value so far this year. After two successive
increases, Chile contributed a mere 2.3% to overall deal value in 2009.

Large cap deals faring better overall, Mexico an exception


• 14 deals valued in excess of $500m were announced during H1 2009, just six deals less than the 20 recorded during the first half of
2008. This is despite the fact that the first half of 2008 had total deal values of $52bn compared to just under $30bn so far this year.
Instead, it is the ‘upper mid-market’ which seems to have suffered the most.
• 2008 as a whole saw 27 deals valued between $250m and $500m – compared to just seven so far this year, a drop of 74%. In fact, for
the first half of 2008 Latin America saw 13 deals announced in this value range .
• While this trend is true for most of the region, Mexico has suffered from the opposite. During the first six months of the year the
country has seen only two deals valued in excess of $100m, with not a single deal valued at $250m or more.

Europe dominates inbound deal flow as LatAm Energy/Mining assets are targeted

• Of the approximately $29bn worth of Latin American deals during the first half of the year, inbound deals represented 17.7% at just
over $5bn. The majority of these inbound deals came out of Europe, which represents a massive 78% of inbound deal values.
• Actual inbound deal activity stood at 61 deals, or approximately 37% of total LatAm deal activity. 55.8% of these deals involved
European bidders, while North America represented about 36% of deal flow into Latin America.
• Almost a third of all inbound deals focused on targets in the Industrials & Chemicals sector, yet these deals only represented 2.2% of
total values. Energy on the other hand saw 13 deals, or 21.3% of inbound deal activity, but represented more than half of all inbound
values. An example was Swiss mining giant Xstrata’s $2bn acquisition of local rival Glencore International’s Prodeco operations in
Colombia.

Brazilian M&A roundup H1 2009
Brazilian M&A suffers overall decline despite improved second quarter Brazilian M&A Activity - Quarterly
• Total deal values in Brazil for H1 2009 are down by 43% compared to H1 2008. Brazilian M&A values stood at 30 80

$37.6bn on 112 deals in 2008, a drop of approximately $16bn to $ 21.4bn on 78 deals in 2009.
• Q2 2009 has however provided some respite as values are up by 144% on the first three months of the year. If 70
25
the high deal values seen in Brazil last year are excluded, the $15bn worth of deals recorded in Q2 2009 is the
highest total value in the region since Q1 2004. Overall, it has been the fifth highest value in a quarter since 60

2003. Deal volumes are also up by 36% compared to Q1, increasing from 33 to 45 deals.

Valuations in Business Services and Telecoms deals hit hardest

• The Business Services sector saw a 90% drop in total deal values compared to the same period last year.

During H1 2008 the sector recorded 13 deals valued at just over $1bn compared to just $104m on nine deals

• Another sector that has felt the pinch of the global economic downturn is the Telecoms sector. H1 2008 10
saw three deals with a combined value of $8.2bn – so far this year TIM Participacoes’ $284m buy of Intelig

Agriculture boom proving attractive investment, ethanol remains vibrant 10

• Brazil’s agricultural exports reached a record $71.9bn in 2008, an increase of approximately 23% from
$58.5bn in 2007, according to the Brazilian Agricultural Ministry. It comes as no surprise then that the 0 0

deals worth a combined $224m. Six months later, the sector now accounts for 7.5% of deal values and 6.4%

value terms, in second on $6bn. With $5.7bn worth of deals Banco Bradesco is the only local firm to be
ranked inside the top five by value. The banking group has been the second most active in the region on five
15
deals, just ahead of Credit Suisse in third.
• In stark contrast to the financial advisory league tables, Brazilian law firms take centre stage in the legal 10

tables. With the exception of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer the top five 10

firms by value and volume are represented by local firms. Machado Meyer tops the value table, having
worked on nine deals valued at $11.6bn so far this year. Last year’s front runner by value, Barbosa, Mussnich 5
& Aragao, is ranked in third on just over $6bn worth of deals. Despite having worked on only two deals thus 5

far, Simpson Thacher takes second place in value terms after being mandated on the two largest deals in the
region to date.
