"Global M&A volume reached USD 3.69 trillion by December 16, 2016, down 21 percent compared to the 2015 full year record high of USD 4.66 trillion," Dealogic said in a report. 

Interestingly, the fourth quarter global M&A (USD 1.12 trillion) hit the USD 1 trillion mark in the first week of December, the biggest quarter since the October-December period of 2015, when transactions stood at USD 1.39 trillion.

This is only the "tenth time that quarterly volume has surpassed the trillion mark", Dealogic said. AT&T's USD 107.9 billion bid for Time Warner, announced on October 22, is the seventh largest M&A transaction on record and the biggest deal announced in 2016.
