IntraLinks Deal Flow Indicator Shows 15 Percent Year-on-Year Growth In Global Early-Stage M&A Activity For Third Quarter

Stock quotes in this article: IL

NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IntraLinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global technology provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, today announced the release of the IntraLinks Deal Flow Indicator ("DFI") for the third quarter of 2012. The DFI, which tracks global sell-side M&A mandates and deals reaching the due diligence stage prior to public announcement, presented a 15 percent increase in global merger and acquisition (M&A) deal activity compared to Q3 2011. All regions also showed a year-on-year positive trend for Q3 2012 over Q3 2011, with the strongest growth in North America (17 percent), with similarly positive trends in Europe/ Middle East/ Africa (EMEA) (12 percent,) Asia Pacific (15 percent), Latin America (10 percent).

Despite an overall increase in due diligence volume compared to Q3 2011, quarter on quarter numbers were varied, with a seven percent decrease globally. Asia Pacific was the only region to show an increase (29 percent), after a slowdown in Q2. All other regions showed declines, with North America showing the largest decrease (12 percent), while EMEA slowed by nine percent and Latin America decreased five percent.

"We've seen a bit of a 'hunker-down' mentality this quarter," says Matt Porzio, vice president, M&A product marketing at IntraLinks. "Dealmakers are working to close the current deal pipeline and build a new one for 2013. That has caused a lull while these deals get executed, and it seems unlikely that deals that get to market at the end of the third quarter will close by year end."

IntraLinks' Deal Flow Indicator results are based on the company's involvement in a significant percentage of M&A deals in the early stages of each transaction, providing a leading perspective on global deal activity. IntraLinks has been a global provider of M&A virtual data rooms for more than 10 years, providing a cloud-based platform that accelerates deals from the beginning to the end of the process. In today's economy, the ability to conduct due diligence on opportunities around the world and execute on deals that achieve value requires a concentrated strategy.
