JP Morgan tops GlobalData’s global M&A financial adviser league table in the Retail Sector for Q2 2018.
JP Morgan has topped the latest M&A league table of the top 10 financial advisers for the retail industry for Q2 2018, compiled by leading data analytics company GlobalData.
The bank led the competition by deal value, with five deals worth a combined $21.5bn, including the industry’s highest value deal – Walmart’s proposed acquisition of a 77% Stake in Flipkart for $16bn.
According to GlobalData, which uses its tracking of all merger and acquisition, private equity/venture capital and asset transaction activity around the world to compile the league table, Barclays and Goldman Sachs were the remaining two advisers among the top three with $20.4bn and $18.8bn, respectively.
Prakhar Baghmar, Financial Deals Analyst at GlobalData, said: “Involvement in big-ticket deals has proved to be the game changer in the retail industry, as all four advisers involved in the Walmart-Flipkart deal made it into the top half of the table, while Rothschild came seventh, despite working on 12 transactions.”
