While big-ticket deals declined dramatically in 4Q14, full-year 2014 nonetheless set M&A volume and value records surpassed only in 2000, at the height of the dotcom bubble.

Mid-size deals (from $100 million up to $1 billion) remained strong in 4Q14. And deal volume set another new post-dotcom-bubble record. If equity market volatility calms, we could see a rapid return of big transformative deals.
