Deal Drivers Middle East: Spotlight on M&A trends in H1 2020 and beyond

Virtual Briefing in Partnership with Mergermarket

DATE: Tuesday 07 July 

TIME: 14:00 GST

 

M&A activity in the Middle East showed signs of life in the first quarter of 2020, despite a decline in overall economic activity and the implementation of social distancing caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Parts of the UAE began lifting restrictions last month, but the easing coincided with Ramadan, which generally results in a deceleration of economic productivity.

The current global situation has caused a slowdown in the growth of M&A activity in the Middle East, but Q1 2020 seems to have benefited from last year’s momentum.  A total of 27 M&A deals have been completed this year, which equates to a value of around USD 31bn, according to Mergermarket data.

On 07 July, in partnership with Mergermarket, we hosted a live virtual breifing and discussed:    

  • The outlook for M&A in the Middle East 
  • Sectors affected by the COVID-19 
  • When will PE activity will ramp up again?
  • Plans for the future and lessons learnt
