Deal Drivers: United Kingdom Q1 2020

In partnership with Mergermarket

Our new Deal Drivers spotlight report focuses on M&A trends in the United Kingdom, and examines the state of the market, how long M&A can weather the COVID-19 storm, and how the leisure sector is faring in the current climate. Notably: 

 

  • UK M&A saw a 93% rise in Q1 compared to the same period in 2019 to €55.8bn; volume dropped 19% over the same period to 285 transactions. 
  • At the start of the second quarter, 21% of deals announced in Q1 were pending completion, and these pending transactions made up 90% of announced deal value in Q1;  
  • Although the leisure sector was the third-largest by value in Q1, the sector is also one of the hardest-hit by the COVID-19 crisis, as restaurants and bars are forced to close and travel is suspended.
