Nadim Najjar, managing director, MENA, Thomson Reuters, said: “Bolstered by Saudi Arabia’s $17.2 billion bond sale in October, Middle Eastern debt issuance reached $77.8 billion during 2016, a 145 percent increase compared to the value raised during 2015 and by far the highest annual total in the region since records began in 1980.”

HSBC took the top spot in the Middle Eastern bond ranking during 2016 with 13.3 percent share of the market, while CIMB Group took the top spot for Islamic DCM issuance with a 13.5 percent share.
“The value of announced M&A transactions with any Middle Eastern involvement reached $46.9 billion during 2016, 16 percent less than the value recorded during 2015 and the lowest annual total in the region since 2013. Middle Eastern equity and equity-related issuance totaled $2.6 billion during 2016, a 55 percent decline year-on-year and the lowest annual issuance total in the region since 2004,” he added.
In respect to investment banking fees, syndicated lending fees increased 50 percent year-on-year to $444 million, a nine-year high, while debt capital markets fees more than doubled to $134.1 million. Fees generated from completed M&A transactions totaled $200.9 million during 2016, a 20 percent decrease compared to 2015 and the lowest annual total for M&A fees in the region since 2012. Equity capital markets underwriting fees declined 51 percent to $41.8 million, a 12-year low.
Syndicated lending fees accounted for 54 percent of the overall Middle Eastern investment banking fee pool, the highest annual share since 2004. Completed M&A advisory fees accounted for 24 percent of fees in the region, while debt and equity capital markets underwriting fees accounted for 16 percent and 5 percent, respectively.

As for M&A deals, the $14.1 billion merger of National Bank of Abu Dhabi and First Gulf Bank was the largest deal to be announced in the region during 2016, it is the largest domestic Middle Eastern deal of all time.
