Global merger and acquisition activity has witnessed stellar activity so far this year, as the total value of deals touched a four-year record high of $934.3 billion, driven by a large number of big ticket deals, says a report by global deal tracking firm Dealogic.

The M&A volume has touched $934.3 billion in 2011 so far this year, the highest year to date volume since 2007.

The M&A volume in the period under consideration in 2007 stood at $1.31 trillion, it said. There have been as many as $164 billion deals announced so far this year - the highest number since 2007.

There were 227 billion-dollar deals in the period under consideration in 2007, the report added.

The month of April saw huge activity in the deal space as the M&A volume in the month stood at $117 billion. There were six deals which were worth over $5 billion, Dealogic said, adding that excluding spin-offs, two out of the top five deals so far this year have been announced in April.

The average deal size for M&A transactions in April, 2011 is $262 million, the highest monthly average since May 2007 (when it stood at $264 million).

A sector-wise analysis shows that telecom was the top most targeted sector accounting for $110.2 billion announced deals so far this year.

Morgan Stanley leads the April 2011 M&A volume ranking with $40.7 billion and Lazard follows with $32.9 billion, Dealogic added.
