Commodity Prices, Activist Investors Likely To Spur More Deals
June 2014 was a good month for acquisitions and divestitures. It was the month 2013 finally stopped. June may have turned around a lackluster start to the year into a rebound toward better and bigger deals. Globally, the U.S. and Canada remained the center of deal activity in the first half of 2014—accounting for 61% of all transactions, according to a report by Deloitte LLP. Much of the investment in the U.S. continued to focus on unconventional shale projects, while Canada saw a move to more conventional plays and away from oil sands. Since the frenzied fourth quarter of 2012 saw a huge value of deals, producers have focused on developing the properties they acquired. “Management teams are generally focused on organic growth and cost containment,” said John England, vice chairman, U.S. Oil & Gas Leader, Deloitte LLP. “They have a drilling inventory that will last for several years, so they would rather put their money into development than acquisitions.”
