The article provides information on business activity of U.S.-based company M&A. It is inferred that the company slowed in its third quarter with 18 percent drop from second quarter in global announced deal volume. The company was dominated by leveraged buyouts (LBO) with management and private equity teaming up. Financial buyers are expected to continue to leave their mark due to money continuing to pour into private equity funds and financing still a relative breeze.
