A total of 74 deals (comprising mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and venture financing deals) were announced in the global travel and tourism sector during June, which is an increase of 39.6% over 53 deals announced in May, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.
Aurojyoti Bose, lead analyst at GlobalData, said: “Deal activity in the travel & tourism sector showed signs of recovery in June, following a decline during the past few months. The growth in deal activity for a sector that has been hit badly due to lockdown and travel restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, could be a positive sign for the coming months.”
