M&A Activity Decelerated In The Alternative Energy Market In Q1 2010
M&As, which include changes in the ownership and control of companies (GlobalData considers this value as not a new investment into the market), in the alternative energy industry witnessed a decline of 17% in the number of deals and 54% in deal value, reporting 90 deals worth $9.9 billion in Q1 2010 compared to 109 deals worth $21.7 billion in Q4 2009. The high deal value in Q4 2009 can primarily be attributed to the following prominent deals: Alstom and Schneider’s agreement to acquire Areva T&D for $5.8 billion; Stanley Works merger with Black & Decker, valued at $4.7 billion; and Panasonic’s acquisition of 50.2% stake in Sanyo Electric for $4.5 billion.

The large scale projects in wind and solar segments are more capital intensive and in the current scenario of relatively tight financial market conditions, it is becoming difficult for companies to keep up the pace of adding new projects, which in turn is driving the slowdown in the alternative energy market. The M&A activity in the wind segment has registered a 97% decline in deal value, from $2.3 billion in Q4 2009 to $61.7 million in Q1 2010, while the solar segment reported an 84% decrease in value from $6.2 billion in Q4 2009 to $1 billion in Q1 2010.

Asset Financing Investments In Alternative Energy Market Slowed Down In Q1 2010
Asset financing, including project financing, self-funded, tax equity, lease and bond financing, and bridge loans for new builds, acquisitions, and the refinancing of assets, registered a decrease in the number of deals and deal value, reporting 357 deals worth $70.1 billion in Q1 2010 compared to 301 deals worth $40.2 billion in Q4 2009, a decrease of 43% in terms of deal value.
