Aurojyoti Bose, lead analyst, GlobalData, commented, “Deal activity in the travel and tourism sector has remained inconsistent since the COVID-19 outbreak. After showcasing improvement during the previous month, deal activity in the sector plummeted once again in November. The decline can be attributed to subdued activity in some of the key markets including the US, China and the UK.”
Most of the key deal types also witnessed decline. The announcement of mergers and acquisition, debt offerings, equity offerings, partnership and venture financing deals decreased during November compared to the previous month, while the number of private equity deals increased.
