3) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY GLOBAL OVERVIEW

4) GLOBAL OVERVIEW May was relatively quiet on the M&A front this year. Global deal values rose slightly to US$348.1bn, up 14.5% from April’s US$304bn, and 27% from May 2014’s US$274.1bn. Conversely, volume fell to 984 deals, down 8.5% from April’s 1,075 transactions, and 30.9% from May 2014’s 1,425 deals. The trend toward higher valuations also marked the month’s top deal. Charter Communications’ US$77.8bn revival of its lapsed deal with Time Warner Cable to acquire its cable systems re-united a leading broadband provider with the cable services giant. Last year’s deal had been contingent on the closing of Time Warner Cable’s US$68.5bn deal with Comcast, which was the top announced deal of 2014. However, increased anti-trust scrutiny from the US Justice Department led to the transaction’s ultimate termination, lapsing with it the Charter transaction and another with Liberty Broadband Corporation last April. Despite that, megadeals lost little momentum, particularly in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) sector. Though tied with Pharma, Medical & Biotech (PMB) with three deals in the top 10, TMT took the cake by sheer value. The combined worth of the top two global transactions, both in TMT, amounted to US$112.7bn, 58.5% of the month’s top 10 overall value. Meanwhile, PMB’s collective value across all deals was US$29.6bn, 14.3% of the top 10 global transactions. GLOBAL OVERVIEW Key Stats 984 deals valued at US$348.1bn up 27% by value with 441 fewer deals compared to 1,425 deals worth US$274.1bn in May ‘14 Private equity has remained more or less stable. Global buyouts fell by 2.9% in total value to US$25.5bn this May, down from US$26.2bn in May 2014, and by 3.3% from April 2015. Exits also fell, to US$37bn, decreasing by 3.4% from US$38.3bn compared to May 2014, but was up slightly by 6.2% from US$34.8bn in April of this year. It is unclear if the rest of the year will result in an evening out following last year’s post-recession correction period or if it will lead to any major changes in M&A values and volumes. Top sector TMT saw 190 deals worth US$158.7bn, up 71.7% by value compared to 266 deals worth US$92.4bn in May ‘14 Top Financial Adviser Bank of America Merrill Lynch ranked first with 13 deals worth US$144.9bn, compared to 12 deals worth US$110.7bn in May ‘14 The US hosted the most global M&A transactions, sweeping eight of the top 10 spots, adding up to US$175.6bn – 50.4% of the month’s total value. Improvements in the US economy, indicated by factors including housing sales and job growth, could mark the continuation of steady M&A transactions in the coming months. Uncertainty over Greek debt payments, the decline of China’s manufacturing sector, and continued political unrest in Russia have put the country in the M&A spotlight. How much American business continues to affect and be affected by global events, however, remains to be seen. Top Legal Adviser Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom ranked first with 19 deals worth US$150.3bn, compared to 14 deals worth US$19 in May’14 4 NORTH AMERICA C&S AMERICA EUROPE MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA ASIAPACIFIC JAPAN ABOUT MERRILL CONTACT MERRILL

11) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY NORTH AMERICA

12) NORTH AMERICA North American M&A skyrocketed in May with 287 deals worth US$236.6bn, the highest monthly deal value in Mergermarket history. Deal values rose by 46.6% since May 2014 and by 304.8% since last month. This is largely due to the 54.4% increase in domestic M&A since last May representing 90.3% of total North American M&A at US$213.7bn. Of the US$236.6bn worth of deals, the TMT sector had a 58.4% market share followed by Energy, Mining & Utilities with 14.5%. Telecommunications and Technology were sector leaders with deal values of US$86.7bn and US$41.5bn. This is a result of three of the top 10 deals being in the TMT space: Charter Communications’ US$77.8bn acquisition of New York City-based Time Warner Cable, a cable telecommunications company; Avago Technologies’ US$34.9bn acquisition of California-based Broadcom Corporation, a fabless semiconductor company; and Altice SA’s US$7.9bn acquisition of 70% stake in Suddenlink Communications from BC Partners. The Time Warner Cable acquisition is the third largest deal in TMT in Mergermarket history, behind Verizon Communications’ US$124bn acquisition of Verizon Wireless in September 2013 and AT&T’s US$89bn acquisition of BellSouth Corporation in March 2006. AT&T’s US$65.5bn acquisition of DIRECTTV in May 2014 follows the Time Warner Cable acquisition, solidifying consistency of megadeals in the TMT space over time. GLOBAL OVERVIEW NORTH AMERICA However, the Time Warner Cable deal is facing opposition from public interest groups, similar to the opposition that led to the lapse of the Time Warner Cable and Comcast deal, illuminating the public’s sensitivity to media and telecommunications megadeals and their influence on market control. Energy, Mining & Utilities M&A saw 36 deals worth US$34.3bn in May. According to Mergermarket intelligence, midstream in the Energy, Mining & Utilities sector continues to be a buyer’s market, confirmed by two of the top 10 deals being in the midstream space. Williams Company’s US$13.8bn acquisition of Oklahoma-based Williams Partners, an oil and natural gas midstream service provider, is the third largest deal. Crestwood Equity’s US$5.6bn acquisition of Texasbased Crestwood Midstream, an owner and operator of unconventional shale midstream business, rounds out the top ten. May and by 29.5% since last month, seen in the seventh and eighth largest deals: TPG Capital’s US$8.05bn exit from Par Pharmaceutical, initially purchased in a takeprivate institutional buyout for US$2.0bn in 2012; and BC Partners’ US$7.9bn exit from Suddenlink Communications, initially purchased for US$6.6bn in a private equitybacked management buyout in 2012. Key Stats 287 deals valued at US$236.6bn up 46.6% by value with 227 fewer deals compared to 514 deals worth US$161.4bn in May ‘14 Top sector TMT saw 63 deals worth US$138.3bn, up 86.6% by value compared to 109 deals worth US$74.1bn in May ‘14 Top Financial Adviser Bank of America Merrill Lynch ranked first with 11 deals worth US$140.3bn, compared to 20 deals worth US$106.5bn in May ‘14 Top Legal Adviser Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom ranked first with 13 deals worth US$148.6bn, compared to 12 deals worth US$18.4bn in May ‘14 In the private equity space, buyouts have dropped by 49.4% since last May and by 53% since last month. Exits, on the other hand, have increased by 5.9% since last 12 C&S AMERICA EUROPE MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA ASIAPACIFIC JAPAN ABOUT MERRILL CONTACT MERRILL

18) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY C&S AMERICA

19) C&S AMERICA May’s M&A activity in C&S America continued to drop, as a result of the region’s continued poor economic performance. There were only 25 deals valued at US$5.2bn, a 29.7% drop compared to the same period in 2014 with 39 deals worth US$7.4bn. Private equity activity gave no indication of interest in the regional market. There were no buyout deals, a notable difference from May 2014 which saw a total of six buyouts valued at US$935m. On the other hand, exits increased to three deals valued at US$658m, when compared to last year, only one exit valued at US$398m was recorded. Mexico’s total deal value of US$2.2bn surpassed Brazil by 8.8%. Owens-Illinois Inc., a US-based glass container manufacturer, targeted the Mexican glass producing industry for the second time in two years by acquiring the food and beverage container business of Mexico-based Vitro SA de CV for US$2.2bn, making it the highest valued deal of the month. Mexico has been slowly becoming one of the main targets for foreign investors who seek global expansion to increase their market reach. Thanks to the largest valued deal of the month, Industrials & Chemicals was the highest valued sector with five deals worth US$2.4bn, gaining a market share of 45.9%. Brazil, the most active country by volume, showed a slight rebound in May despite its GLOBAL OVERVIEW NORTH AMERICA C&S AMERICA overall weak economic outlook, with 12 deals worth US$2.1bn. Deal value increased by 44% when compared to May 2014, when Brazil accounted for 14 deals worth US$1.4bn. Six target companies from the top 10 deals were Brazil-based, a sign that the country was a top investment target for the month, despite risks. The country’s economy has been falling into a downward spiral; slow GDP growth combined with a doubling of the public deficit and high interest rates have all made Brazil a very risky investment opportunity. Additionally, the Brazilian government’s involvement in a recent corruption scandal that arose around Petrobras, the most highly indebted oil and gas producer, forced the company to divest five different groups of assets and raising around US$13.7bn. making it the fifth largest transaction of the month. The acquisition is a significant strategic move for China, enabling the country to provide services for investment and trading activities between the two countries, and ultimately giving Chinese investors sturdier ground in the Brazilian market. Key Stats 25 deals valued at US$5.2bn down 30% by value with 14 fewer deals compared to 39 deals worth US$7.4bn in May 2014 Top sector Industrials & Chemicals saw 5 deals worth US$2.4bn, up 991.7% by value compared to 5 deals worth US$ 218m in May 2014 Top Financial Adviser Alfaro, Davila y Rios, and Deutsche Bank ranked first with 1 deal worth US$2.1bn SunEdison and Owens-Illinois are two US bidders that had a substantial impact in May’s total deal value, investing almost US$3.4bn in Brazil and Mexico, 65% of total deal value with only three deals. China also made an interesting move this month by purchasing a Brazilian bank. Bank of Communications, the China-based state-owned bank, acquired Brazil-based Banco BBM SA for US$175m, Top Legal Adviser Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett ranked first with 1 deal worth US$ 2.1bn 19 EUROPE MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA ASIAPACIFIC JAPAN ABOUT MERRILL CONTACT MERRILL

25) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY EUROPE

26) EUROPE European deal activity in the first five months of 2015 has experienced an enthusiastic start with a 12% increase in total M&A transaction values reaching US$386.6bn compared to US$345.3bn recorded in the same period last year. This marks the highest total deal values for the first five months of a year since the US$411.9bn reached in 2008. Although keeping up a healthy level of activity, May has been a subdued month for acquisitions in Europe. After April deals totalled an astonishing US$163.1bn, May only recorded US$37.7bn of total transaction value. This was mainly due to a lack of mega deals (deals exceeding US$10bn) announced during May, compared to three in April 2015, including the US$80.6bn acquisition of BG Group by Royal Dutch Shell which was the 6th largest transaction on Mergermarket record (since 2001). The most active country in Europe for the month of May was the UK, even after a significant 82.2% fall from US$90.2bn to US$16.1bn in total transaction values. Germany has picked up, increasing its deal activity by 282.2%, from only US$811m in deals in April to US$3.1bn in May. France on the other hand saw a dramatic decrease from US$20bn of total deal values in the previous month to a small US$3.1bn in May, representing an 84.5% contraction in M&A activity. Inbound activity targeting European companies increased in May by 33.9% GLOBAL OVERVIEW NORTH AMERICA C&S AMERICA representing a decrease of 39% compared to the US$10bn in May 2014. (reaching US$16.2bn) compared to the US$12.1bn deals announced in May last year. The most active investors in Europe were traditionally US companies, which exceeded the US$5.7bn investments in May 2014 by 15.8%, spending US$6.6bn in May 2015. May 2015 marked a slowdown in European M&A, recording the lowest deal values for a May month since year 2010. Even though companies’ cash reserves and commitments remain high and debt financing is available on very favourable terms at the moment, uncertain economic long term recovery across Europe and a falling euro currently negatively impact boardroom confidence. Europe is nevertheless expecting increased investments already seen from US and Greater China, targeting healthcare assets in the UK and Ireland, industrials in Germany, luxury goods in Italy, and financial services in Belgium. Although outbound deals fell by 16.3% from US$24.6bn in May 2014 compared to US$20.6bn in May 2015, there was an increase of 212.1% in investments outside of Europe compared to April this year (US$6.6bn). This might be due to a stabilizing Euro, which seems to have rebounded after an all-time low in March. The largest outbound investment was made by the Ireland-based Endo International, which acquired the US-based Par Pharmaceuticals for US$9.7bn. 349 deals valued at US$37.7bn up 20.2% by value with 178 fewer deals compared to 527 deals worth US$47.3bn in May ‘14 Top sector Consumer saw 53 deals worth US$6.1bn, down 39.1% by value compared to 65 deals worth US$10bn in May ‘14 Top Financial Adviser JPMorgan ranked first with 15 deals worth US$31bn, compared to 8 deals worth US$23.6bn in May ‘14 Top Legal Adviser Ropes & Gray ranked first with 3 deals worth US$17.7bn, compared to 3 deals worth US$1.1bn in May ‘14 The sector M&A activity has been very evenly distributed in the current month, with the top five sectors in Europe all having a market share between 9.3%-16.2%.

32) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA

33) MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA May 2015’s lowest monthly value since August 2014 put added strain on the region’s total activity to-date with 20 deals worth US$1.5bn recorded in May. So far the year has seen US$13.8bn-worth of deals, representing a 31.8% decrease compared to the same period in 2014. One factor for the slowdown is the likes of powerhouse countries such as South Africa and Israel increasingly looking outward for targets. Outbound activity was particularly strong in May with six deals worth US$3.4bn, resulting in a 26.1% increase by deal value compared to May 2014. Deal activity was driven solely by South Africa, with the three deals worth US$3.4bn announced in May marking the highest monthly outbound deal value since May 2006. To date in 2015 there have been US$5.4bn worth of outbound deals carried out by South African companies, a 103% increase compared to the same period in 2014. The bulk of this deal value consisted of the US$2.9bn acquisition of UK-based New Look Group by Brait Private Equity, the second cross-border acquisition by Brait in two months following the recent acquisition of UK-based Virgin Active in April. So far in 2015, Israel has also been a key driver of outbound M&A activity, with 15 deals worth US$3.7bn announced, continuing its status as the most active acquirer outside of the region in terms of deal count. The largest of these deals was the US$3.2bn acquisition of USbased Auspex Pharmaceuticals by Teva GLOBAL OVERVIEW NORTH AMERICA C&S AMERICA Pharmaceutical industries. According to Mergermarket intelligence, Teva Pharmaceuticals is currently pursuing an unsolicited bid for UK-based Mylan for US$82 per share, with the consideration to consist of approximately 50% cash and 50% stock. Although the offer has so far been rejected strongly by Mylan, Teva is persistently pursuing its target using extremely strategic tactics. Energy, Mining & Utilities continues to be the most targeted sector in the region todate in 2015, with 22 deals worth US$4.9bn showing an 80.9% increase from YTD 2014. May was however, a slow month for the sector, with only one deal worth US$84m announced, down from four deals worth US$236m in May 2014, signalling a possible slowdown in M&A activity in the second half of the year. is down by 78.8% compared to May 2014, it is the highest monthly value targeting the region this year-to-date, highlighting growing confidence in Middle East and Africa’s consumer sector. Therefore despite a slow month for M&A in the region, there are signs that regional powerhouses are becoming more aggressive when acquiring abroad, reaching record highs this month due to South Africa’s activity. Energy, Mining & Utilities is a sector to watch in the coming months, as it may be starting to be experiencing a slow-down, leaving other sectors such as Consumer to gain more prominence in the M&A market.

39) A MERGERMARKET REPORT ON GLOBAL M&A ACTIVITY ASIA-PACIFIC (excluding Japan)

40) ASIA-PACIFIC (excluding Japan) The share swap merger between Samsung C&T Corporation and Cheil Industries Inc is the largest deal of Asia-Pacific excluding Japan announced in May. The US$11.3bn deal is in line with the restructuring of Samsung Group due to the Lee’s leadership inheritance of the entire Empire. This is the second mega share swap merger this year in Korea, after the US$26.4bn deal between SK Holding and SH C&C announced last month. China has been keeping its dominance of M&A activity within this jurisdiction by occupying 50.3% and 54.7% M&A deals in value and volume respectively. The acquisition of 51% stake in H3C Technologies by Unisplendour and the corresponding private placement towards Unisplendour by the investor group led by Tsinghua Unigroup has contributed CNY 6.2bn combined in value.
