The Financial and Legal Adviser League Tables in the power sector, which ranks advisers by the value and volume of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals they advised in the first half of 2022, were released by GlobalData on August 12, with a total of 671 M&A deals worth $163.9 billion announced in the sector during the period.

Furthermore, the data shows that Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) and Rothschild & Co (EPA: ROTH) stood atop with the highest value and volume of M&As compared to their peers. Goldman led the cohort by value, achieving a total of $13.3 billion worth of deals, while Rothschild led by volume, advising 15 deals in total. 

Aurojyoti Bose, a Lead Analyst at GlobalData, broke down the two leading positions, further explaining how the top two were chosen. 

“Rothschild & Co led by volume but lagged in terms of value and settled for the eighth position by this metric. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs advised on fewer but big-ticket deals, which helped it to secure the top position by value. Four of the six deals advised by Goldman Sachs were billion-dollar deals (≥ $1 billion) while Rothschild & Co advised on two such deals.”
