Average one-week deal premium M&A worldwide 1990-2017

This statistic illustrates the average one-week deal premium worldwide of acquisitions between 1990 and 2017. An acquisition premium is the difference between the estimated real value of a company and the actual price paid to obtain it.

Historically the average one-week deal premium on acquisitions was 32.7 percent. The year 2017 saw the lowest average premium (24.8 percent) paid on companies other than 2004, making 2017 a great opportunity for acquirers but making selling companies less likely to sell.

Supplementary notes

The source added the following information "The total of 18,493 M&A transactions comprises completed, unconditional, and pending deals announced between 1990 and 2017 with transactions of at least $25 million and at least a 75% share transfer. Self-tenders, recapitalizations, exchange offers, repurchases, acquisitions of remaining interest, minority stake purchases, privatizations, and spinoffs were excluded. Only deals with a disclosed value were considered."
** The acquisition premium is the amount by which the target's offer price exceeds its closing stock price one week before the original announcement date; the top 2.5% of deals were excluded to reduce distortion by outliers.
