The outlook for M&A in the healthcare sector was much more positive in August than it was earlier in the year, according to Mergers & Acquisitions’ Mid-Market Pulse (MMP), a forward-looking sentiment indicator, published in partnership with CT.

In August, the sector garnered a 3-month outlook score of 71.0 and a 12-month outlook score of 72.1, much higher than the scores of 53.2 and 59.8 the sector received in March, when we last featured it. Interestingly, there was not a wide disparity between the 3-month and 12-month outlooks in healthcare as there was in some other sectors, most notably energy, in which the long-term outlook was much more positive than the short-term outlook.
