The number of deals announced in the region increased by 5.4% during the reporting period, when compared to the earlier week.

However, an analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database revealed that the deal volume remained below the Q1 2020 and March 2020 weekly average levels.

Deal activity has remained inconsistent since the coronavirus/Covid-19 outbreak and this growth in the announcement of deals amidst the volatile market conditions is an indication of revival of optimism.

However, there was a decline in deal volume in South Korea and Australia by 2.6% and 38.3%, respectively.
