  •    The number of M&A deals done in the EMS industry increased in the first half of 2017 versus the year-earlier period. According to MMI’s count, 15 M&A transactions closed in the EMS industry during the first six months of the year, up from 13 in the first half of 2016 (Chart 1). That’s an increase of 15%. If deal making continues at this pace in the second half, then 2017 will go down as the busiest year for industry M&A since 1995.
