Across EMEA in Q3, M&A transaction volume sank to its lowest point in three years and value was down on both year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter bases. Megadeals were virtually non-existent, TMT weakened, and high debt costs and constricted capital markets are proving to be a significant hindrance to funding bumper deals.
However, the good news is that deal value was not as low as it was earlier this year and pockets of strength were seen in a variety of regions and sectors. Moreover, pipelines remain relatively well stocked, meaning opportunities exist and remain attractive for those willing to seize them.
