M&A Activity in MLP Space Remains Robust

Over the past decade, the current universe of publicly traded partnerships has closed 682 transactions–a total value of $226.72 billion. Deal flow has been particularly robust over the past three years, reaching a record $47.6 billion in 2010. With the group having completed or announced $25 billion worth of acquisitions thus far in 2013, we expect transaction volume and value in the MLP space to be on par with recent years.

Our high-grading of the Focus List continues.
