Deal Drivers takes a close look at M&A in Q1 2021 in EMEA, and reveals that deal value increased 40% from €193.1bn in Q1 2020 to €269.8bn in Q1 2021. And deal volume grew by 14% from 1,918 deals in Q1 2020 to 2,196 transactions in Q1 2021. What sectors and regions drove this activity? And will it last?
