Deal Drivers: France Q1 2020

In partnership with Mergermarket

Our new Deal Drivers spotlight report focuses on M&A trends in France in Q1 2020, and examines the state of the market, the impact of COVID-19 on transactions, and what lies ahead. Notably:

 

  • Despite Q4 2019 optimism, French M&A volumes fell by 16% in Q1 2020, the lowest level since Q3 2014;

  • PE has been a major presence in France’s largest deals in Q1, with PE firms connected to four of the top five and six of the 10 largest deals in France in Q1;

  • Business services was the only industry among the top three sectors of both total deal volume and value, and is one of the few industries that could thrive going forward;

  • After extending lockdown measures in April, the government estimates that France’s GDP will contract by 8% this year.
